Maker's Mark:



Plate, patent ironstone china, decorated with an underglaze blue printed pattern and extensive hand painting in red, green and pink, the whole enlivened with gilding.  The border at the rim has small reserve panels painted in red enamel with Chinese-style vignettes; the centre is painted in grey-green monochrome with a Chinese style landscape.  The reverse has the mark Turner's-Patent hand painted in red enamel. William and John Turner were issued a patent for the production of ironstone china in January 1800 but by 1806 the brothers were declared bankrupt, leaving a very short time frame for production of their ironstone wares.
