Very uncommon pair of transfer-printed pottery plates depicting King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. Their royal majesties are surrounded by an ornate border of roses. The edges of the plates are scalloped and molded. The plates are glazed in a brilliant gold color that contrasts beautifully with the grays and blacks of the transfer print. The backs are marked "J.W. Reid & Co., London, Ontario, England" and "His Majesty King Edward VII" and "Her Majesty Queen Alexandra".
Origin: England, ca. 1905. Condition: excellent, except for a 1/4" flake on the bottom of the rim of the Edward plate. Size: 10" diameter.
