Here is a wonderful plate with Mr. Squeers from the novel Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens. This Dickensware plate was made by Royal Doulton at Burslem, Staffordshire, England from the early 1910s to the 1940s. Mr. Squeers is shown standing in a street carrying an umbrella and tipping his hat. The background is cream shading to a darker brown at the bottom. At the top are depicted numerous buildings along the street. The rim is dark green. The underglaze mark is in black showing Charles Dickens in the center of a circle with the words Royal Doulton Dickensware in an outside circle. Above the circle is the word copyright and beneath is the word England. There is also a number with letters written in green and the words "Mr. Squeers."
DIMENSIONS: The diameter of the plate is 9 1/4 inches (23 cm).
CONDITION: There are no nicks, chips or cracks, but there is fine crazing to both the front and reverse overall. There is also some staining to the front.
