|Description||One cream-coloured glazed ceramic plate with brown designs and flowers. The back is stamped (transfer-printed in brown) with a castle-like logo and a rope motif and "SANDON / OLD HALL / 1790 /ENGLAND". The floral designs are transfer-printed, so the plate is likely a late 19th-century item.|
|Makers mark||Reddish-brown transfer-printed mark on the underside has "SANDON / [motif of a crenellated castle, with "OLD HALL" / [closed rope motif with "1790"/" ENGLAND"|
Manufactured in England by the Sandon pottery. In the late 1890s, exported wares had to include the country of origin so this item might be from about then. Its ornate pattern suggests the Victorian period.
Provenance unknown. Last owned by Jean Reid (neé Givens) of Holland Township, Grey County. May have belonged to her parents, James and Minnie Givens, before her. They were married July of 1898 and farmed in the Massie district of Holland Township.
James and Minnie Givens are buried at Greenwood Cemetery, in Owen Sound, Grey County.
