This Blue Willow Platter has a wonderful antique wreathe, crown, and bell mark circa 1859-90. But because of serious stable cracks, it can only be used for decorative display. One crack extends from the center top almost to the middle of the platter. The other extends from the right side bottom up to the end of the border. The earthenware platter was made by C.T. Mailing, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland. The border and center design are the traditional Blue Willow Pattern.
