Old English Staffordshire Ware
EXPORT PLATE FOR
JONROTH & Co
"HOUSE OF SEVEN GABLES"
This Fabulous Plate comes Staffordshire - possibly from the Tunstall Pottery of William Adams & Sons Ltd or maybe from Alfred Meakin.
It was made for a Company called Jonroth & Co who Specialised in commissioning Pottery from Staffordshire Companies and Exporting them to America.
John Roth began his relationship with Adams in the 1890's, and although he commissioned plates from several other Potteries - including Ridgways, Alfred Meakin, Crown Devon (Fieldings) and Booths - his alliance with Adams lasted longest.
This Plate celebrates a famous building in Salem Massachusetts in USA.
The House was originally built in 1667-68 and is now a Museum.
The Plate is 10 1/8" in Diameter and is Blue and White with a Band of Floral Decoration around the Central Scene.
The Backstamp has "Old English Staffordshire Ware" - the name given to all of Jonroth's Exports from Staffordshire - in an Arc over the Backstamp of Jonroth and all over "MADE IN STAFFORDSHIRE ENGLAND".
The Plate is in Excellent Condition. There are No Chips, Cracks or Crazing and only VERY Light Surface Marks.
All of my pottery is well packed before posting.
I have many other items for sale and will be happy to combine Postage and Packing on Multiple Purchases.
