This is a lovely piece of china, done by John Maddock & Sons ltd. Made in 1923 and still in wonderful condition after all these years (the year can be tell from the markings on the back). This platter was made in the reign of George V. This is found out also by the markings on the back. Has a lovely rose boarder with green outer lay. Has all three markings on the back. One is stamped....John Maddock & Sons ltd Royal Vitreous, the other is the Kings symbol which is etched in the china itself not stamped and the number of plate (which I think is #14) also etched. This lovely plate like our other items belong to our family. The measurements are 16 inches long by 12 wide. Would make a most delightful addition to anyone's china collection or for that special holiday dinner.
