Wallis Gimson and Co. Potteries
Staffordshire England ~ 1884

This large victorian 8 sided aesthetic 9 5/8 " x 11 " plate is transfer printed in dark brown. The plate is further enhanced by fabulous underglaze painting in shades of red, golden yellow, green and cobalt blue.

The pattern features a double row of geometric designs along the rim and fantastic wildflowers and blooming orchids surrounding two cartouches of Holy Trinity at Stratford - upon - Avon and a portrait of William Shakespeare.

The Collegiate Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity, Stratford-upon-Avon, is often known simply as Shakespeare's Church, due to its fame as the place of baptism and burial of William Shakespeare. The present building dates from 1210 and is built on the site of a Saxon monastery. It is Stratford's oldest building, in a striking position on the banks of the River Avon, and has long been England's most visited parish church.

William Shakespeare, poet and playwright, was baptised in Holy Trinity on 26 April 1564 and was buried there on 25 April 1616. The church still possesses the original Elizabethan register giving details of his baptism and burial, though it is kept by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust for safekeeping. His wife Anne Hathaway is buried next to him along with his eldest daughter Susanna
