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.
