This is a beautiful flow blue, rolled edge; souvenir plate entitled “Souvenir of Toronto ~ City Hall”. The main scene is Toronto City Hall. The rolled boarder has panel scenes Osgood Hall, Toronto University, Board of Trade, Parliament Buildings, Arouries, and St James Cathedral. Views of early North America are preserved in Staffordshire pottery to this day. Their owners are very proud of them. The Staffordshire potters showed their greatest genius in the choice of the rich dark blue color. It was a lovely tone, and once it made an overwhelming appeal to housewives. How many different designs were made will never be known, as, even in these days an un-cataloged piece will not infrequently turn up from some attic chest or some ancient chimney corner. It is scenes such as the ones on this plate that make that century-old Staffordshire ware so popular nowadays with collectors. Historical societies likewise seek appropriate pieces for their museums. Such commemorative dishes certainly help to keep alive the past glowing memories. They are more than plates: they have become a library of History. Rowland & Marsellus were importers, wholesalers and retailers, especially of 'souvenir' wares operating out of New York, c.1893 -1938. This plate is in GREAT condition! No chips, cracks or repairs. Bright blue & clear white, no stains, some age related crazing.

Backstamp: R&M in diamond, The Rowland & Marsellus co. Staffordshire England Designed & imported for The Robert Simpson Company Limited Toronto
