This is a lovely berry bowl and plate in a pattern that is known as Iris. It was made in England by the Royal Staffordshire Pottery and dates to the Early 1900's. It has deep slightly flowing blue around the rim and generously applied gold gilding. The iris flowers decorating the bowel and plate are a slightly lighter blue.
The bowl measures 5 ¼" in diameter and 1 ¼" deep. The plate measures approximately 7" in diameter. The bowl and the plate have the manufacturer's mark printed in blue ink on the back. The mark was used from 1907 on. It reads: It reads Iris, Royal Staffordshire Pottery, Burslem, England, F. The bowl does not have the F, but has the numbers 220 impressed into the back.
The condition is fairly good. There are no cracks, chips or stains, but there is light crazing and minor roughness around the rims as well as some manufacturing imperfections.
The berry bowl and under plate are priced at $45 for the set. We have three sets available at $45 each.
