I bought the plate shown in the pictures some time ago and my recollection is that it was described as 17th century. I should be very grateful if you could advise me of your thoughts on its age and if it is tin glazed.

kind regards

I *think* it may be C1840'ish spongeware.

I have these similar pieces, I asked about them on the British Pottery and Porcelain Facebook group, but nobody seemed to know anything.

I’ve had a couple of pieces of spongeware, but I think later - late 19th-early 20thC which were French or Scottish. I don’t know about earlier ones, but Scottish spongeware is very collectible

Scottish was my guess, I've seen the later pieces around, but they seem to be made out of finer clay and much much less "rustic" looking bases.

What date would you have put these at please Naomi? Happy

The base and composition looks at least 18thC but not my area of expertise.

Thank you for your advice and photographs of other pieces. The blue design plate has similarities to mine. The coloured plates and designs remind me of wemyss, so attractive. I thought you might like to see another plate that I bought at the same time as the other. It has a cow in the centre which I love. Unfortunately it has an extensive crack across part of it but I still love it. I will follow up on the leads you gave. English? Blue & White 17th Century? Tin Glazed? Spongeware plates  Dscn6110

You have great taste Clara, lovely pieces. They look like 18th century to me, maybe earlier.
You could email the images to any number of decent auction houses and I am sure a fair few will be able give you a definitive answer.
