This pretty 8-1/2" plate was made by Ashworth Brothers about 1877. The pattern is a much older one made by their precursors Mason's in the 1830's.
The Mason's Collectors Club calls this pattern "Fence and Muscove Ducks". I believe the "e" is an error, and it should be called "Fence and Muscovy Ducks".
The plate is shaped and there is much gilding. The condition is excellent. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing and no repairs. There are some slight utensil marks, and some wear to the gilding. The plate rings when tapped, and displays nicely.
The plate is marked on the bottom with the printed British Royal Arms, impressed REAL IRONSTONE CHINA, and has the Ashworth pattern number B 3621 hand painted in red. This Ashworth mark is shown in the book: "The Raven Mason Collection" on page 143, plate 179.
Note: besides this single plate, I have a matching set of six plates available.
