This is a good, late Georgian, ironstone dinner plate, hand decorated in pattern no. 15, manufactured by the English Davenport factory, which was situated in Longport, Staffordshire, England between 1794 and 1887.

The oriental garden "Imari" pattern is transfer printed in cobalt blue of different shades, then all hand coloured with different enamels in good detail. The pattern is called "Bamboo and Peony" which is Davenport's pattern number 15, a very early pattern. The rim edge is also hand gilded. This exact pattern is illustrated on a plate in Godden's Guide to Ironstone, by Geoffrey A Godden, page 230, plate 176.

Davenport were one of the earliest producers of Ironstone along with Mason's, Spode and others and called their ironstone pottery wears "Stone China".

On the back the plate carries the blue printed Davenport Stone China Anchor mark for the period which was one of Davenport's very earliest marks, dating this fine piece to circa 1810.

Overall, a very beautiful and decorative Dinner plate over 200 years old.
