An 8-3/4 inch diameter plate made in England prior to 1850, with sponged border and a forest green circle decoration in the center. The plate is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs. The hand-painted forest green ring at the perimeter is smeared where the glaze ran but the cobalt, gold and green sponges were applied very carefully. I have another plate with the same motif, also in excellent condition, with slight variations from the hand that decorated them. The plates are priced separately. There is an impressed five-point star mark on the underside but no other identifying information.
