Antique Edwardian White Ironstone Medium Sized Scale Plate Featuring the Justitia Virtutum Regina Logo
A great Victorian white ironstone scale plate made in the nineteenth Century. In good condition, these ceramic platters look fabulous simply on display and they also make excellent cheese plates.
Made in the late 1800s in white ironstone, this scale plate has a striking under glaze black transfer print featuring Lady Justice and the logo “JUSTITIA VIRTUTUM REGINA”. This translates to ‘justice is the queen of virtues’. The print is still exceptionally clear and makes a very interesting feature.
The scale plate measures 23.5cm in width and 1cm tall. The ironstone makes it ideal for use as a cheese board or for serving up food on as a platter or ironstone slab, keeping the food at a cool and constant temperature.
The plate is in excellent clean condition with no dents or cracks. There is some surface crazing on both the front and back of the plate, as to be expected in pieces of this age. The outer rim has some firing marks, including a small blue splash. and there is some minor aged wear to the edge of the rim but, otherwise, it’s a great item for use and display.
