Description Dark-bordered floral ceramic dinner plate, that likely pre-dates the 1890s. Dark-brown or black border at rim.

The centre is decorated with a large floral grouping (pink, purple, yellow, blue, green) in the foreground, with a house/gazebo pictured in the background. Cream glazed. "20" impressed on base. No maker's identification.
Provenance This appears to be from the 19th-century (part of a set). Its country of origin needs to be researched.
