A great Edwardian white ironstone scale plate made in the early twentieth Century. In excellent condition, these ceramic platters look fabulous simply on display and they also make excellent cheese plates. This is a rarely seen small square example.

Made from 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. It contrasts well against the clean white ironstone background.

The scale plate is a smaller size. 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, cracks or crazing. The outer rim has some marks from where it would have rubbed against the scale when it was held in place. However, otherwise, it’s an exceptionally clean example and is perfect to use as a small cheeseboard for two or to have on display.

Length, 18cm; Width, 15cm; Height, 4cm
