Rare Antique Edwardian White Ironstone Scale Plate – Purple Ribbon Banded Advertising for WT Avery
A wonderful example of a large and heavy antique white ironstone scale plate, featuring the impressive ribbon advertising logo for W.T Avery, which dates from the early 1900s.
This Edwardian scale plate has a rarely seen ribbon pattern, which would have originally been part of a set of scales. WT Avery were renowned scale manufacturers at the time. They also produced other shop outfitting items, like dairy slabs and platters. Their products often carried different versions of their logo in transfer print.
It is quite rare to find this ribbon version of the WT Avery logo in purple transfer print. This version is in great condition still, with the colouring still very clear and vibrant.
This scale plate is the larger version, measuring 28cm in diameter and 1.5cm in height. This makes it perfect for display purposes and for use as a cheese board or meat platter. The ironstone will keep produce cool for some time.
This white ironstone scale plate is in good antique condition. The transfer is still very clear. There are a number of age marks on the surface of the front of the plate. There are more notable scratches and marks (possibly grease marks) to the back of the plate, together with wear to the outer rim. This is evidence of its former life, where it would have been in daily use in a grocers or butchers shop.
