The is the prettiest piece that I have seen with the Cairo pattern! This pattern, printed in a Saxon blue and tan with luster, is from the Cairo series and features a large scroll cartouche with a camel and rider. Two men in robes are walking with a long stick, ahead of the camel. Two circle cartouches with geometric patterns are on opposite sides of the main cartouche. Beautiful birds and flowering branches also accent the well of the plate. The rim has a wonderful black flower pattern and a beautiful tan luster color. The cartouches, scroll, plants and birds have all been accented with the beautiful Saxon blue color giving this a wonderful contrast. The outside rim has a deep brown color on each side of the handles. This pattern can be seen in a reprint of a page from a W. T. Copeland & Sons Catalog in Wilkinson2002, p. 130. This cake plate is in excellent condition. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE. Backstamp: Crown in middle of circle banner that has WT Copeland & Sons Banner underneath says STOKE UPON TRENT
