Gorgeous platter printed in a rich dark soft blue with white gadrooned rim. The scene is believed to depict the Ladies of Llangollen, the Right Honourable Lady Eleanor Butler, daughter of the Marquis of Ormonde and Miss Sarah Ponsonby, daughter of Viscount Duncannon. They are said to have tired of Irish society and wished to set up home together, so in May 1778 they were provided with a small allowance and left Ireland for Llangollen in North Wales. They acquired a cottage there, which they converted and extended in the Gothic taste and named it Plas Newydd - the New Place. It still stands today and is open to the public. Backstamp: Royal Cauldon England Est 1774 Native. Excellent condition. OVERSEAS SHIPPING OUTSIDE EUROPE Owing to the size of this item a supplement of 40 about US$52 will be added to the standard overseas shipping charge.
