Thomas Mayer is an elusive figure in Staffordshire pottery history. Around 1827-1838 he occupied a pottery called Cliff Bank in Stoke-upon-Trent. In 1838 he and the Mayer family moved into the house adjacent to the manufactory which was in Dale Hall, a district of Longport, Burslem in the Staffordshire Potteries. Here he was joined by his brother, 1841 trade directory lists “Mayer, Thomas & John”. By 1846 Thomas & John were joined by another brother, Joseph and they continued in business at Dale Hall as T. J. & J. Mayer. The business continued as T. J. & J. Mayer until the time of Thomas’s death in October 1855.

This wonderful mulberry transfer-ware set of 6 salad/dessert plates, circa 1840's, is the "Abbey Ruins" pattern. The central motif depicts an abbey building falling into ruinous disrepair with several cows lingering outside. Buildings, trees, hills and a lake with boat is in the far distance. The wide border and verge of each plate is decorated with groups of large and small floral arrangements against a stippled background. The plates measure 7 1/4" across and are stamped with one of the company's logos "Abbey Ruins" and "T & J Mayer Longport". The set of 6 has no cracks, chips or repairs; I have two matching plates, each with a rim chip, which I will include free of charge.
