This beautiful neoclassical plate shows a scene from Ivanhoe. Ivanhoe is a set of three novels by Sir Walter Scott depicting 12th century England. The detailing on the plate is magnificent, and this plate is one of the best scenes in the series, showing what I believe is Ivanhoe and Rowena. The plate is in excellent shape with no chips, cracks or damage, though there is some wear to the surface that does not affect display. A very pretty antique plate! The Wedgwood three character dating system, third letter "L" dates it to 1883. Very nice!
