The Staffordshire pottery mark on this mid 19th century mulberry transferware plate belonged to Anthony Shaw Newport factory Circa 1851-1856. It is marked Al. Shaw. He moved his factory to Middleport called the Mersey Factory after that and his marks changed to Anthony Shaw and then Anthony Shaw and Son. This definitely dates this lovely "Pomona" pattern dinner plate to the 1851-1856 time period of production. Shaw produced much of his Staffordshire pottery for the American market. Mulberry (purple-pink) transferware was generally produced in less quantity than other colors and in the past was considered scarce.
This lovely 9" diameter mulberry transferware plate is well marked, in excellent condition with no damage, ready for your wall. This white clay earthenware is called Pearlware. Used originally often as everyday dishes, now they belong in a display cabinet or on the wall as lovely 19th century historical art.
