On offer is a sought after staffordshire transfer printed plate with the scene, Signing of the Magna Charta by the maker, Jones and Son,who were in business from 1826 to 1828. This is from the British History series and shows barons presenting the charter to King John of England in 1215. Little is known of this firm and their British History series may be the only series of prints made during the short period of manufacture. The back is printed as shown and an example may be seen on page 339 in Coyish and Henrywood's Dictionary of Blue and White. A hard to find plate from a little known potter whose wares are not commonly seen.
Dimensions: Diameter is 9 7/8"
Condition: Fair-average. The print is clear, the color good and the glaze smooth with hardly any rubbing to the print. There is an interior hairline as shown that does not go to the ends and cannot be seen on the front without real effort or magnification. It does not seem to have any effect on the stability of the plate. There are two spots on the rim that have a touch up as shown. Otherwise there are no issues. Display is excellent. You would really have to look close at the front with a magnifying glass to see the two touch ups.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
