Here is a gorgeous, 8 sided, scalloped large Imperial Sone china plate dating to 1849 by John Ridgway in a lovely, brown transfer Botanical pattern called Berlin Wreath. The face of the plate depicts an airy bouquet of wildflowers and roses surrounded by a larger border of flowers.

Condition: Beautiful! Small rim flakes /chip, one of which was done during manufacture as it is glazed over.  The others are barely noticeable.  There is crazing present, typical and commensurate to age. There are some scuff marks nad normal wear, some glaze pops (specifically noted and shown in one of the pics above), etc…all normal for antique pottery
