Antique English scales plates, circa mid-to-late 19th century. These Victorian-era scales plates, once part of dairy or grocer’s scales, both feature transfer-printed pictorial versions of “Justice”. The larger of the two is also the earlier example of the two, and is transfer-printed in both finer detail, and in a light blue color not often seen on scales plates. It advertises “Driver and Sons” as the scales plate maker. They operated from Without London between 1865 and 1886. Both come in good antique condition with acceptable wear, as shown. Both are suitable as food platters.

Condition: The discoloration near the bottom of the smaller plate is due to contact with black dye during manufacture. On the larger plate, there is fine crazing, discoloration and a couple of small chips along the rim. Additionally, the glaze is scratched and rubbed on both from normal wear. No restoration on either.

Size: 6” and 8 ¾” in diameter.
