This is a very pretty blue transferware plate by Ridgways in the Oriental pattern. It is marked on the back with an old Ridgways mark, Oriental and England. The mark dates the plate to between 1891 and 1910.
The plate has gently scalloped edges and a beautifully decorated border. There are flowers in shades of blue around the rim and six alternating scenes of flowers and buildings. The center has a lovely oriental scene with people, trees and buildings.
The condition of the plate is fair. There is overall crazing on the plate due to age. There is a chip on the back rim of the plate that does not show in the front.
It measures approximately 6 ¾" in diameter.
