This "Stone China" soup plate has a shaped, gadrooned edge, with an allover transfer and colored design of flowers in colors are iron red, cobalt and light blue, with touches of gilding. Some sparse motifs on reverse, in imitation of Asian wares.
These types of designs were popularized by Mason's, but this plate is by Hicks and Meigh, ca. 1825. The mark include probably included a pattern number, but this is indistinct. There is a painted "20" which may be a decorator's number. This pattern is closely related to the "Number 13" pattern, which is shown along with Hicks & Meigh marks in Godden's "Guide to Ironstone Stone and Granite Wares".
