Interesting. I had an enquiry last year from the person who owns the three pieces illustrated on Replacements as Unknown Maker Hardy pattern. They are soup tureen, stand and cover printed with Domestic Scenery in green. The printed back stamp is HARDY within laurel leaves and a crown above.
There is no record of a potter called Hardy, who could have made these pieces. Domestic Scenery, which is clearly a series pattern and not a single view as stated in the Database, is only recorded as made by Samuel & John Burton. The fact that your platter has both printed backstamps suggests that the Burtons are the makers and Hardy is a retailer or importer and may be Henry Hardy earthenware & glass dealer of 67 Moorfields, Sheffield, England active 1837, which puts him in the right period.
I would be interested to see images of your platter.
