This pair of J Tams, Longton blue and white plates depict storks among the reeds. They are in lovely aged condition and show a few small chips, staining to the glaze, and a manufacturing flaw on the top of one of them (please see photos). They each measure 23.5cm wide. From the mark underneath they can be dated as having been made in May of 1879.
Perfect to add to a collection or for display, but not for food usage due to their age.
