This is a beautiful English antique transfer ware platter. The pattern is Assam and it has earth toned flora with gilded rims. Stoke on Trent, also called the Potteries, is a city in Staffordshire, England. They are very well known for the exquisite pottery made in this area. The platter measures 15 3/8″ x 20 1/2″. It is a very large and heavy platter. The bottom has several markings: 1112, Assam, B, a quiver with arrow that says Ridgways, Trent on Stoke, and a couple I can’t make out! There are no chips and cracks but some crazing of the glaze which I guess a 140 year old piece would probably have. PICK UP ONLY in Peoria, AZ.
