This is a wonderful old piece with delightful decoration. The plate has a scallop edge and a raised relief rope with Staffordshire knots along the wide rim. The background is a soft cream color. Beautiful birds of teal, burgundy and peach have been painted with beautiful foliage and flowers of the same colors. A small green worm has been added that it appears the birds are after! Raised gold embellishments have been added to the birds and foliage making them pop into life on the plate. There are two ½” small cracks along the rim otherwise plate is in excellent condition, please see pictures. 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.
Backstamp: British Diamond Mark
