These nine Aynsley China plates have sprigs of roses hand painted on a white ground which has a transfer printed border. Finished with gilding to the rims and handles to which there is some rubbing.
The pottery firm of Aynsley was established by John Aynsley in Longton, Stoke in 1775. In 1861 his grandson, also called John Aynsley, built the renowned Portland Works in Longton, Staffs. Aynsley china is synonymous with high quality, strong and brilliantly white bone china.
One of the oldest surviving potteries, Aynsley made it to the 21st century and was still there after the closure of other big plants like Spode in 2007. These pretty antique items are decorated in a pattern which was registered in 1909.
