This 14 1/2" x 12" antique Blue Willow Platter is priced reasonable because of a large crack located a little below center on the right side. The crack goes through the border and into the well. It is still a nice display platter. It is the traditional Blue Willow design on heavy earthenware. The mark is 1800's with a wreathe, crown, banner and beehive. The initials J.J.K.(or N) Co. The beehive mark was used by early staffordshire manufacturers 1850's to 1890's. I have been unable to match the initials to a particular manufacturer.
