This Super Rare Plate Ranks in the Historical Staffordshire Category of English Transferware Ironstone. It was manufactured by J. Goodwin, Seacombe Pottery located in Liverpool, England. This factory operated 1835-1864.

The scene is actually the Third Royal Exchange built by William Tite an opened by Queen Victoria in 1844. The equestrian statue of the Duke of Wellington by Sir Francis Lantrey stands in front.

COMMENT:

PROVENANCE: This plate was found in an antique market some twenty three years ago. Believe me! The dealer was very possessive and certainly knew what he had possessed. It was not an easy deal to make. It has been in my private collection ever since. These London Views are considerably rare and are highly sought after by connoisseur collectors and museums.

Why this plate had surfaced in Quebec is probably due to the fact that the Goodwin family imported to their china warehouses in Toronto, Ontario lots of china for distribution throughout the colonies (called the Dominion of Canada in 1867, when Upper and Lower Canada united).

HISTORICAL STAFFORDSHIRE: This plate falls into a very special category being referred to as Historical Staffordshire or Historical China. This means that the views are actual typographical views of real places, events (i.e. Battle Scenes), or people in history.

This category of transferware scenes was made for export to the colonies (Canada), and the United States as a means of educating the public what the rest of the world looked liked.


I was the proud owner of several of the watercolors as well as a beautiful platter

We have three basic categories of Historical China: (1) American Views, (2) British Views, and (3) Canadian Views. There are others as well depicting the Middle East which were transferred by other British potters at the time e.g. Ridgways Beauties of America.
