In 30 years of collecting flow blue, I have never seen this historical souvenir plate. It has all of the bells and whistles that any collector would love to have. It was made by the Rowland & Marsellus Company around the late 1800's. It is titled " Don't give up the ship - Death of Capt. Lawrence June 1st 1813 ". It was made in Staffordshire England. It has all of the swashbuckling features of an old naval battle scene. Pictured are cannons firing, sailors with their guns & swords drawn, a drummer boy in full uniform and British navy seamen in their vintage uniforms. Some are carrying the wounded Captain Lawrence down below while others are attempting to keep others from boarding the ship. Look at the pictures carefully as the details are great. The plate is in excellent condition but does have age appropriate crazing that mostly shows up on the back of the plate. There is one small ding the size of a pinhead on the back side edge that was probably caused by an old wire plate hanger. It does not show from the front. 10 3/4" diameter. Very deep cobalt flow blue.
