ER is Elizabeth Regina (our Queen) and the date is her coronation year

Oh! I had no idea! That's a little embarrassing - I'd assumed EIIR were the artist's initials. Is there any symbolic significance to the rooster?

I wonder if the plate was made in 1953 as well. Would have been a very early piece.

I don't see a connection between the rooster and the coronation but I guess it depends on how you view the Royal Family

the pottery opened in 1952 so I suspect the 53 date is correct as date of production

I believe thereís another one on the thread that was also made during the Coronation, but the decoration isnít Coronation inspired so probably just a marketing gimmick

Nice plate. See my long Angel Fish plate post earlier. That is not a normal dish. Hold on to it.

Just found your Angel fish, thank you for the prompt! It's beautiful! The handwriting on the back is different from mine, so it must have been a different decorator.

I wish there were photos of the backs of the VA plates.

I had one of these thinly thown bowls (see earlier in the thread).
Probably thrown by Frank Spindler. Can't make out a signature on
the front, a fantastic clourful early piece.

Just found another commemorative bowl online - it's the same shape as mine. Sold at an auction two years ago.

So I have a fish one and the V&A are of the same series. There is a bird one posted on this thread also. I've been watching out for them over the last few years. One sold on ebay for very little while back. They do come in various sizes the one i have is 300mm (12inch) but the auction one you posted is 200mm (8 inch). I did not realise there were other commemorative scenes. So interesting TY for posting.

I have to say that they don't all seem to be of the same standard so yes several persons must have decorated them. I still think someone like Joyce threw them because they are of the ilk of the wafer thin and tapering towards the rim that I have mentioned before, someone knew how to throw and was showboating.
