Miles Mason began his career in 1796 as a china importer in London, England. Over the next 300+ years, the company underwent many acquisitions and name changes. The most notable and lasting of acquisitions occurred in 1862, when George Ashworth became partner to Francis Morley. The George Ashworth name was used from 1862 until 1969. This version of hallmark was used in production after 1950.
In 1969, the company was renamed Mason's Ironstone Ltd. The company began to remake many of its earlier designs. These Oriental designs marry the simple elegance of Eastern art with heavily ornate and brightly colored Derby designs of England. Masons insured continuity of its name and product when it joined the Wedgwood Group in 1973. Mason's Ironstone Ltd. continues to produce finely decorated porcelain.
This plate is in wonderful condition with no chips, cracks, but crazing is present. This will not affect the plate's usage. The browns, greens, and yellows are still warm and vivid. This would make for a perfect cake plate or for serving cookies with tea and coffee.
