Soup Plate c1860 Maker: Bell  Pattern:Royal Conservatory
Soup Plate c1860
The print on this plate is in sepia, with hints of black, grey and brown. Unusual and very attractive.

Printed cartouche with similar, but Prince of Wales feathers instead of Crown, plus the words ROYAL and CONSERVATORY in different typefaces. A Registration lozenge for 7 April 1856.
