Small Sized Antique Edwardian White Ironstone Scale Plate Advertising Day & Millward with Justitia Fides Logo
A wonderful example of a smaller sized Edwardian ironstone scale plate, in mint condition, dating from the early 1900s.
This white ironstone plate is a wonderful example produced by renowned scale manufacturers, Day & Millward of Birmingham. As well as featuring advertising for the firm, with “DAY & MILLWARD. PATENTEES. LONDON & BIRMINGHAM” in fabulous black transfer print typography at the base, the scale plate is very ornate with the Lady Justice and the “Justitia Virtutum Regina” logo also featuring prominently.
These ironstone plates are great for serving cheese or butter on in the modern kitchen as the ironstone keeps them cool.
This scale plate is in excellent condition, with no crazing or cracks. There are some surface scratches and a transfer blemish to the right of the ledge on which Lady Justice is standing. There are also spots of discoloration and some wear to the edge where the plate has been used as part of a set of scales. The back also has some marks where the glaze has settled differently towards its base.
However, overall this is an excellent quality piece of antique kitchenalia. Its smaller size lends itself for use as a cheese plate for a small number of people.
