This large platter is a fine example of the Aesthetic period. It has a complex border of three bands. There are five cartouches. The most prominent cartouches contain crosshatching behind two joyfully singing birds sitting on a branch. The four others have geometric, star, and fan-like patterns. The background has an arch and a small building, with more buildings in back of it. Two kinds of branches with blossoms weave behind these scenes. The registry mark is for January 6, 1881, the last year of the partnership. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE IRONSTONE OR 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: Pavia British Diamond and B&SH
Measures 14 ½” x 11 ¾”
