A group of three Staffordshire plates. The first a small (6 ½ inch diameter) pearlware plate with good handpainted roses and a solid colored border with lines and dots. The second plate (8 3/8 inches diameter) also pearlware handpainted with a border of small roses, leaves and ovals over two lines. The third a ceramic plate with a shaped edge (10 1/8 inches diameter) with a very bold free hand painted single Adam’s rose dominating most of the area. All are unmarked. The first two are probably from the first quarter of the 19th century and the Adams rose from the 2nd quarter of the 19th century.
Condition: all three without chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. The first with a few minor knife scratches. The second with some glaze inclusion, some crazing and a little discoloring in the crazing. The third very clean.
