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.
British Historical China

COMMENT:

PROVENANCE: This plate was originally found in Quebec and has also been in my private collection over twenty three years. 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 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 specific plate would be termed as British Historic. 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.

The potters traveled abroad for inspiration; they would gather information and prints from artist and illustrators who did engravings and sketches as they too traveled.

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.


CONDITION: Excellent! This plate has an excellent intense dark brown color transfer; the quality of transfer print is excellent as well. There are no kiln splits or sagging and no glaze bubbles, nor fork or knife scratches. There are not too many of these plates floating around in the market place in any condition!
