Decorative Plate - Can you help ID?

Post by Beege on August 24th 2018, 5:54 pm

Hallo all.
I purchased this plate, curious to find out more about the maker. However, although it is signed quite clearly, I cannot find the maker in Yates-Owen/Fournier (2015). So, I was wondering whether this plate is not English: does anybody recognise?
Thank you.

I believe itís a bought in blank thatís been hand painted by a decorator rather than a studio potter. Some were self employed and some worked in the factory but were allowed sets of tableware to decorate for a special occasion such as their wedding

Hi Naomi. Thank you for your input.
I hadn't considered that: I suppose there must be thousands of such examples. Does this mean the plate is 're-fired' once decorated? Excuse my ignorance on the mechanics of producing ceramics!

Almost all plates are refired after decorating, sometimes multiple times because different coloured glazes need different firing temperatures.
