This really nice Wedgwood plate features pheasants done in a red transferware, as they peacefully dine in the countryside. The rim of the plate has grapes and flowers in relief, and red borders on each side of the relief. The plate is 8 & 1/2 inches across flat side to flat side and it is 9 & 1/2 corner to corner. It is marked "Queens Ware" on the back, under the glaze, and it is in excellent condition....no chips or cracks....but there is crazing, which is a product of age. Wedgwood's cream colored earthenware was called Queen's Ware after the successful completion of his first commission for Queen Charlotte which was secured in the summer of 1765. The term "Queens Ware is in reference to the creamy color and the method of firing the china. I can't read the impressed letter date code, but I'm guessing early 1900's.
