The plate illustrates the Aesthetic Movement with the dramatic bamboo shoots and the three cartouches scattered over the center of the plate. The Bamboo shoots fill the background of the center and the cartouches, two rectangular one semi-circle, feature an old mill, a floral scene, and geometric patterns in the semi-circle. The very bold border consists of several layers the outer most and inner most a simple T-shaped design . These enclose a zig-zag squashed square filled with squiggles and bracketed by triangles. The Meir Greengates factory in Tunstall was purchased by William Adams & Co. in 1896 and Bamboo was one of the Meir patterns that Adams continued. There are no chips or cracks on these plates. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
We have two of these and both are in excellent condition PLT1122 & PLT1123
