These two pretty Sandwich or Cake Plates were produced by J & G Meakin from Hanley - one of the Staffordshire potteries. Alfred Meakin who operated a pottery from Tunstall, was a brother to James and George.
The plates are hand-painted on transfer in a floral pattern on a cream ground. Gilding to the rims and tabbed handles to which there is rubbing.
One of the plates has small flakes under the handles and a one inch faint hairline and are mentioned for accuracy.
Approximate dimensions : 10.5" / 27cm including tabbed handles.
In good vintage condition.
The backstamp includes the word Sol and was in use from 1912. Gilder's mark.
Two striking and colourful pieces.
