According to the TCC Pattern & Source Print Database (available 24/7 to members, and available for $10 for 24 hours for Non-members -- see the website for instructions on how to sign up for the limited use), the Pattern Peruvian Hunters was made by 2 different potteries. Goodwin & Ellis, in Lane End, Staffordshire, working from 1839 to 1840, and Peter Hampson worked from 1854-1858 in Longton, Staffordshire. Most likely, given what appears to be the 'denser' nature of this plate, the color and the transfer, your plate is the later Hampson version. On the Database, the listing for the Hampson version of Peruvian Hunters shows a circular printed cartouche with the pattern name around the outside and Hampson, Longton in the center. It is not uncommon in that era to find an unmarked piece. Both potteries used the same or similar plates for the center image and the border.
Note also that Godwin & Ellis used another view for the center transfer, this one showing a group of people (hunters?) on the banks of a river surrounding a rather large steer, which is lying on the ground (the hunted?). The border is similar and this example on the Database has an elaborate, printed Goodwin & Ellis mark.
Hope this helps,
