This is a medium 14" x 11" earthenware Aesthetic Movement Antique English Staffordshire Platter. Aesthetic designs were popular in the late 1800's. On a cream background, there are four brown cartouches depicting popular places in England. They are of scenes of Norwich, Dartmouth Castle, Salisbury Cathedral, and a seascape. Also, there are flowering branches and butterflies. The rim has a diamond pattern brown border.
Condition is very good with no chips or cracks. I find no manufacturer mark. There is some light crazing and a few utensil marks.
