antique plates
« on: September 08, 2016, 05:35:40 PM »

does anyone on here know anything about old plates such as delft wear especially delft blue plates.

I have always been interested in old things and I bought three old plates some years ago, and wonder just how old they are.

If anyone knows anything about such things I will take some photos of the three plates and put them on here, but will have to root through a box to find them.

Thank you.

Just Goooogling around...


Quote
Your plates were made by Keeling & Co in North Staffordshire.

Dale Hole, an large pottery works, was established by Joseph Stubbs in 1790, hence the 1790 date used in the maker stamp. In 1843 the works were taken over by by XXXXX XXXXX and Joshua Mayer, the names and owners changed over the years, with a Mayers family member involved in each new iteration.

Keeling & Co took over in 1886 and remained so until 1936.

The words Late Mayers is a device used by Keeling & Co to pay homage to the previous owners and establish that the quality and standard of the earthenware was that of what the Mayers used.


Chatsworth is the pattern name.


Hope this helps.


Cheers, Lance
