Victorian Majolica was produced from 1851 to around 1900, starting in Europe and then moving to America. Majolica is a lead or tin glazed earthenware which is first fired to the biscuit stage. Then it is decorated with brightly colored metallic glazes and fired again. This gives the piece the brilliance which is characteristic of majolica.

This lovely and colorful plate, circa 1870-1890, has a central design of a large and several smaller deep green grapes leaves, surrounded by clusters of aged white grapes, strawberry blossoms and soft pink strawberries with green caps. The plate measures 7" across with a slightly scalloped edge. It is probably English; this pattern was made by the Wedgwood Company. It is stamped with either two "D's" or two "O's", which I cannot identify. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; overage age related crazing. Great design.
