English Ironstone
Commemorative Denby Dale Pie Plate 1928
This printed ironstone plate dates to the year 1928. Made and sold as a fund raising commemorative for the local infirmary, the plate measures 9-1/2 inches across. It hails from the village of Denby Dale in Yorkshire UK, a village made famous for the local bakery that bakes giant prize pies, a tradition first started in 1788. This particular plate -- the Infirmary Pie -- raised money to endow a cot at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary. The pie was 16 feet long, 5 feet wide and 15 inches deep. The plate celebrates this momentous occasion.
Both the lettering and decorative advertising illustration is transfer-printed in black and underneath the glaze. An amusing image to celebrate an amusing event. Also an imaginative decorative accessory for a kitchen or bakery ironstone collection.
The plate maker is unknown. It is marked HG/DD, could be the maker or the retials. DD perhaps stands for Denby Dale. Surely hailing from one of the northern potteries of York or possibly `imported' from Staffordshire where many Victorian pottery firms made commercial advertising wares, made to order for shop-fitters and retailers. A sturdy plate meant for heavy duty baking use and easily adaptable to a country kitchen or a contemporary cheese shop or bakery.
The plate is in great condition.
