This old item is 12" By 9 1/2" square. It is impressed in the base "Twiggs" which may be a mark as early as 1820s 30s. Twigg & Co is an important pottery in the Swinton Yorkshire area. The pattern is the well used Wild Rose or Nuneham Abbey pattern in a most effect blue and white.Condition;- Front of plate has a kiln pit and knife marks on the surface. (Hardly surprising for an ancient carving plate.) Rear is crazed. It has rest wear on the rims. (Glaze wear) Within the crazing there are one border line and a central star that are probably tight hair line cracks. Still a most collectable and nice item. More photos? Please send email address.
