Re: Willow pattern from HMS Erebus wreck
After some research in my library, my guess for a maker of your plate would be (according to the printed mark that includes the words "Opaque Warrenteed China"): Jacob Marsh, c.1819-1832.
After an exhibition, the Erebus returned "to the Antarctic in the 1842–1843 season"... and then left soon after for another voyage. The ship was "last seen entering Baffin Bay in August 1845." The timelines seem to fit with goods made before their departure.
