This attractive and rare 8" blue and white pottery plate with a clobbered border of colorful flowers, It shows a rider paying his toll at the Tyburn Turnpike. That location is now the corner of Oxford Street and the Edgeware Road in London. The earthenware plate is part of a series of rural views called the "Beaded Frame Series". Each piece had the location printed on the back within a beaded frame.
The plate is in very good condition. There are no chips, no visible cracks, no discoloration, and no repairs. The gilded border is intact. There is crazing. The plate does not ring when tapped. Besides the "Tyburn Turnpike" mark, there is an impressed mark I show in the last photo.
Note: Most references show the maker as William Mason, c. 1820. However, the Northern Ceramic Society and the Transferware Collectors Club state that the makers are G. M. & C. J. Mason, 1813-26.
I have 4 of these plates available. The price shown is for a single plate.
