A fantastic pair of early Victorian bread plates, earthenware likely of Staffordshire origin.
They both have a slightly different structural wavy design with moulded cut out handles decorated with foliate in a deep purple / mauve glaze.
They are further decorated with a lovely wheat border and a central hand painted design of poppies.
The wheat and poppies design are representative in Victorian culture of the month of August and plentiful summer harvests, a time of good eating and good weather.
C1860's they are both numbered on the underside in blue glaze with no. 80.
A fantastic pair to add to your kitchen or dining room, the possibilities are endless.
There are some small chips to the underside handles of one of the plates and a thin hairline but nothing major or structurally weakening.
12.5" width with handles
