The also have a year symbol for the year 1881 (square divided in four), number 2246, and MINTON (on one of the plates). The 1879 year is the date this design was registered and 1881 the date these particular plates were made. Would look lovely displayed on a wall or cabinet with circular English green leaf plates (available in my shop in separate listing). In very good condition as shown.
