This lovely ironstone, blue transfer-ware dinner plate is the "Eon" pattern. The central motif is a country scene with windmill, other buildings, trees and people. The wide border consists of six cartouches of either a windmill or buildings, people and animals. The plate is gently contoured with twelve sides and measures 9 3/8" across. The back is stamped with the English Registry mark, "Ironstone" and a portion of "G Wooliscroft". There are no cracks chips or repairs; some light staining on the backside.
