"Fisherman" by Enoch Wood & Sons (1818-1846). This 7" plate is from the 1835-1846 period. Although this plate is printed in underglaze brown and blue, the pattern is also found printed in combinations of red and black, blue and black and red and green, and probably more color combinations! The factory also used different borders for this series, as well as different centers, a highly unusual occurrence.
Plate, 9 inches. As there is no other name, the pattern is known by the number printed with the name of the factory, Enoch Wood & Sons (1818-1846.) Although the pattern looks oriental, it is actually a romanticized version of an oriental pattern, and thus is found in Romantic Themes/Oriental in the database.
