This flow blue soup plate measures 9 3/4" in diameter. The blue is a deep cobalt blue. The scalloped edge is gilded and sponged around the rim. This is a rare pattern. The bottom is marked GTM Stoke ORCHID Rd. No. 970654. This is the George Thomas Mountford Staffordshire pottery 1888-98. There are the beautiful orchids as well as a bird and butterflies. I have 3 of these plates available. All are without chips or cracks. There is light crazing, but no discoloration. The price is for a single plate. You may buy 1 or more.
