This 9-1/4" Chinoiserie plate has gilded leaves and flowers in the pattern and border, particularly on the large flower and fence at the center. The pattern was named "Fence, Rock & Flower" by the Mason's Collectors Club. The plate is especially unusual because of the embossing along the edge.
The plate is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. There is the expected wear to the gilded edge, and a few utensil marks on the large gold flower. Although the flower looks rather brown in the photos, I had to shoot it that way as the gilding caused so much reflection.
The plate has the linear impressed mark: MASON'S PATENT IRONSTONE CHINA, which dates it c1813-20.
