1890's King William of Orange "No Surrender" Pink Lustre Plate Plaque
1890's King William of Orange No Surrender Pink Lustre Transferware Plaque
We believe these late Victorian 1890's earthenware Staffordshire plaques were made to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne in 1690, when William III took the British Throne, keeping the English Monarchy Protestant.
A King William III "No Surrender" Rectangular Plaque with 2 holes so that an old silk ribbon could go through the top to hang on the wall. It is is lovely, historical and has a great graphic image of William III on horseback with his sword and "No Surrender" printed in old transferware litho.
"No Surrender" was shouted over the walls in Derry in Ulster at the Jacobites who had come to take it. It is trimmed in pink luster and gilt and measures about 8.5 inches by 7.75 inches. It depicts King William III 1650-1702, known as William of Orange.
The condition is very good, a very slight faint hairline can be seen on the back, see close up photos of condition. It appears to have some old putty coloured paint drips on reverse, which could be easily removed, but we did not touch it. There is a blue double XX hand painted mark. It was found in Totnes, Devon. It is uncommon and beautiful. It displays beautifully, just as in photo number one.
Size: 8.5 inches by 7.75 inches
