This fabulous antique and rare Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Commemorative plate was made by Allertons England and dates circa 1897 and is a mixture of transfer printing and handing painted finishing. Decorated with Queen Victoria in portrait as both a young and old monarch, the Rose, the Thistle and the Shamrock representing the United Kingdom. The words “Longest and Noblest Reign – 1837- 1897″. Backstamped “Allertons, England, Victoria” and a number which looks like “4911″ (another plate like this has then number 49614.)
In excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration work. There is however, some wear to the glaze and gilt edging and a couple of factory transfer flaws. This is to be expected of a plate that is over 110 years old!!! Measures 22.5cm in diameter.
This is lovely plate that is quite rare and that would be great as part of any Queen Victoria memorabilia or antique pottery collection!
