Staffordshire Embossed Cream / Ivory Ware Plate
George Jones and Sons Crescent Potteries
This gorgeous, creamy ivory plate is gently scalloped around the rim and features embossed scrolled reliefs. The plate features lavender, blue and pink Snapdragons or Gladiolus (I’m guessing based on the shape of the leaves) but may be Larkspur, Delphinium or Foxglove. Whichever they are, they are all lovely.
The company began operation in c.1864 at Stoke Upon Trent at the Trent Potteries Works as George Jones and in 1873 became George Jones & Sons Ltd. They produced gorgeous majolica and earthen wares.
In 1907 the works was renamed Crescent Potteries.
George Jones died in 1893.
Condition: No chips or cracks. Some crazing is present.
