1880's Ashworth Bros mark Blue & White Transferware Ironstone Platter
1880's Victorian marked Ashworth Bros Blue & White Transferware Ironstone Platter
This a beautiful Ashworth Bros pink, blue, green, yellow floral flower pattern Staffordshire platter circa 1880's in a beautiful pastel blue and white pattern. I do not know the actual pattern name, and wish I did. It is made of heavy white ironstone china, and was made in Hanley, Staffordshire, England.
Condition: There are no chips, cracks or repairs and the piece is in beautiful condition. There is a beautifully clear transferware Ashworth Bros mark on reverse, see photo. There is also a 4XD incised mark and a red tally mark of 1431.
It is overall made of a heavy ironstone, very clean with a gold gilt rim, some wear on that gilt paint on rim from hand use.
This printed mark was introduced c.1880
This example does NOT have the word "ENGLAND" and was therefore made before 1891.
