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 fabulous blue transfer-ware platter, circa 1840's, is the "Non Pareil" pattern, which is a French term for 'none similar'. The central motif depicts a romantic park-like landscape including an oxen drawn carriage, adults, children, trees, flowers, large buildings and stream with a boater. The wide border is decorated with clusters of large and small floral, tendrils and grass arrangements. The octagonal platter measures 17 1/2" in length and 14" in width. Stamped with one of the company's logos "Non Pareil" and "T & J Mayer - Longport". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
