Fabulous platter made in England by John Alcock, Cobridge, Staffordshire, c. 1853-1860. Excellent condition ,no cracks nor chips. The pattern is clear and bright as you can see(so many are too flowed+blurry), it still retains it's lovely original shine . This is a Large Heavy platter that measures 17 ½" x 13 ½" in the beautiful Mulberry, almost black color. Lovely meat platter just listed in time for the holiday Roast! I have another one identical,great for displaying on your walls. The Vincennes pattern is romanticized almost Indo-Chine, with images of figures in a landscape with classical ruins, a floral border pattern with ancient temples.
