This attractive 9" Flow Black or Mulberry plate was made during the "Romantic Period" of English transferwares. It dates 1851-61, and was made by Charles Meigh and Son of Hanley, Staffordshire.
It is marked with 3 identifying marks on the back. Impressed: Improved Stone China. Stamped in purple with a pseudo Oriental mark. And a printed cartouche in black with the pattern name "SUSA" and the initials below: C.M. & S.
The plate is in only fair condition. There is heavy crazing (especially to the back, with discoloration there). There is heavy wear to the front of the plate. There are 2 burst glaze bubbles on the front of the plate. There are 3 hairline cracks which can be easily seen on the back of the plate.
Nevertheless, it is displays quite well, and would look good on a wall or in a cabinet. This is not a commonly found pattern.
