One of the advantages of using printed patterns was that this was much less expensive and faster than painting by hand. Caughley (along with Worcester) made dishes in a printed gillyflower pattern, but these two plates are not printed but painted by hand. It’s the same pattern in both cases. Of course, the painted versions are much rarer than the printed ones. Both of these plates are seven and a half inches across and in excellent, near flawless, condition. The edge has a raised molded border that is picked out in blue.
