This gorgeous handled tray / plate is by George Jones, Crescent Potteries of Staffordshire England and dates to about 1920 or so. The center depicts a bouquet of bright flowers which are hand painted and clobbered over a fushcia colored transfer. The plate has a stunning embossed border or flowers, leaves and feathers which is painted with a black rim. Absolutely gorgeous detail! Some of the prettiest plates I've seen.

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.
