This is a lovely and unmarked Romantic Staffordshire plate. It is very much like Adams or Alcock but not marked. The light blue scene is of a stream with rocks in the middle. On the left is a well defined tall feathery tree and a church in the background. There is a man with fishing pole (?). a boy, and a dog. On the right of the stream are two trees. The plate rim is ridged and has a leafy design with a stippled background. There is another design under the rim before the flat part of the plate. I cannot find the pattern in any book. There were many small potteries in the Staffordshire area of England in the 19th Century. Not all patterns were marked. especially in the early years starting in 1815. The bottom of the plate has an impressed mark I cannot read and a blue mark that I cannot identify. The plate is 8-3/16" diameter.
The condition is good. There is an old chip on the flat bottom rim and knife marks on the plate. These plates were used for everyday. The marks do not show when hung or held to the light.
