The Alfred Meakin, Royal Albert, Victoria and Highgate Potteries, Tunstall, Staffordshire was established in 1875. These lovely blue transfer butter pats in the "Clifton" pattern are circa 1891 - 1897. The word "Ltd" was added to the mark after this period. The flowers resemble zinnias or chrysanthemums and are a striking slate-blue color. The butter pats are 3" across with scalloped edge and no trim. The mark is a crown and "Clifton, Royal Semi-Porcelain, Alfred Meakin, England". There are no cracks or chips, but some light crazing and staining in various degrees due to the fat content butter.
