19C British Staffordshire Pottery Blue and White Square Plaque – Rare Pattern

19C British Staffordshire Pottery Blue and White Square Plaque.

LOVELY 19th Century British Staffordshire pottery plaque from circa 1850.

Square shaped with raised edges and curved corners.

This plate/plaque can be used as a bon bon dish …… due to its depth.

Transfer printed…..central scene of ladies and child harvesting grapes …..4 other scenes on each side depicting rural or country scenes with animals etc.

The plate is edged with a geometric pattern and the rest of the plate is decorated with flowers etc.

This is a RARE PATTERN !!

Marked on the back.

We have been unable to definitely identify the makers mark but we are of the opinion that it was made in Staffordshire, England. It is possible it could have been made in Germany.

Lovely little plaque !

STAFFORDSHIRE POTTERY: Staffordshire pottery is pottery that is produced in the Staffordshire potteries area of the United Kingdom. This area is in the Midlands – the potteries used to centre around six separate towns (Burslem, Fenton, Hanley, Longton, Stoke and Tunstall) which are now Stoke on Trent.

The area really came into focus as the powerhouse of pottery production in the UK and indeed in the world in the 1700-1800s but, the truth is, that this has been a significant pottery producing area for centuries. Staffordshire has plenty of clay, lead, salt and coal in the area which made it a perfect place for pottery production.

In its heyday there were hundreds of manufacturers producing all kinds of pottery in Staffordshire – some of whom became famous names and some of whom are still producing pottery to this day.
