Hi Adam, |
Your pattern is indeed pattern number 2650, the hand-painted number on the back of the plate. We have two images of the pattern in the TCC Database. The 10.25 inch plate has no maker's mark; however, the 14,75 inch plate with handles has, in addition to the 2650 pattern number, the impressed initials for Bates, Walker & Co., c. 1875-78 in Burslem, Staffordshire. If you have access to the database, the pattern #7043 is the pattern record. It's a lovely plate, and there are a few similarities to the willow pattern; however, it can at the most be considered a willow variant. Thanks for contacting us!
