This platter measures 12" x 3 3/8". It has 6 straight sides and a deep well. The blue is a deep flow with lots of flow. The bottom is marked with a mark which very difficult to read. I have been able to identify the pattern as PELEW made by E. Challinor. The rim is outlined with a plain dark band. The border has a pattern of flowers overlaid with dark strokes. In the left part of the center scene there is a large towered pavilion, the usual tall palm trees, and a bridge that crosses to an island at the right. The other islands are pictured in the background and a little boat flying a pennant is at the upper right. The Pellet islands are situated 350 miles east of the Philippines. There is considerable wear to the bottom and on the edge of the well. There are a couple of glaze pops. Really nice condition for an 1840 platter.
