This pretty blue and white 7-3/4" plate is very busy! The pattern is called "Chinese Bird". There are several variations; this one features four vignettes (two duplicates) of Chinese people.
It is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no crazing, and no repairs. There is an "in-the-making" small firing crack to the glaze on the back which does not go through the plate. The plate rings when tapped.
The mark on the back says: "This Pattern was introduced by William Adams in 1780 being a copy of a Chinese pattern & one of the first of its style produced in English pottery." This re-make of that pattern dates circa 1930.
