The cottage look is captured in this pair of Mason's Patent Ironstone China plates, in the Paynsley pattern. The large plates would be perfect in a wall grouping to achieve the English garden or cottage look. The plates are in good condition with characteristic crazing of the glaze but no chips or cracks, just a bit of wear over the years to add charm. The plates are dinner size, approx. 10.5", and the border is an elaborate repeat pattern of three dots and a long mark underneath it, much like a bird track. Inside the border is a band of egg and dart pattern. A big floral bouquet decorates the center featuring colors of pinks, reds, and magenta flowers. One of the flowers appears to be a passion flower, others may be violas, and perhaps a camellia. The mark on the reverse is circa 1820 according to Kovels' New Dictionary of Marks.
