A dinner plate by W Smith & Co, transfer printed in black with a “Gothic” cottage pattern. Marked “wedgewood” and “Stafford Pottery”. Having pirate-marked his products “wedgwood”, William Smith - who in addition was based in Yorkshire, not in Staffordshire - after processing with Wedgwood was forced to change the mark and so added an extra “e”. The “wedgewood” mark was used from 1848 to 1855 when the production ceased. Diam: “9 ½/ 24 cm. Condition: chips to foot rim, some rubbing to the surface and a hairline to the well.
