This is my first time using this forum so I hope I have done it correctly.....

If anyone can help with the ID of this dish given to me by my Aunt years ago, I would be really grateful.

Many thanks.

welcome to the forum,
Yes you did everything perfectly but please use the bottom of the 3 url options as everything in Yorkshire is bigger and better but the images don't fit on small pooter screens Excellent

It's a Majolica plate, probably mid to late 19th century. Without wanting to denigrate it, the quality isn't fantastic (compare it to Minton, George Jones, Holdcroft or other important producers) either in terms of crispness of moulding or care taken with the decoration. Still, it's a pleasant enough thing and the blue background elevates it above some of the plain green Majolica. It's quite an extensive subject but a useful starting point is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victorian_majolica.

Many thanks. I really like the colours. Good to know what it is - I reckon some of the other bits I have are Majolica Ware also. Thanks again.
