A 5”, 10-sided Staffordshire Toddy Plate in the “Arms of the States” pattern by Mellor, Venerables & Co. This version includes 4 medallions of the seals of 4 States (Virginia in the center and clockwise New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts) on a white ironstone ceramic. The underside of the little plate is impressed “Ironstone” but there is no maker’s mark. The plate is in very fine condition with only a tiny edge nick at about 3 o’clock. The plate is from an important California Collection of American Historical Cup Plates; check my other Ruby Lane listings or contact me if you are looking for anything specific.
