Willow Pattern

Aha! Blue decorated plates with a Chinese look to them. That’s willow pattern – a style popular for many years and still available today.

At Market Lavington Museum we have several examples and here’s one of them – an old and somewhat battered plate.

Willow pattern plate, some 25cm in diameter, at Market Lavington Museum

This plate, we believe, dates from the 1880s and was used by the Welch family when they lived at Spring Villa on Church Street in Market Lavington.

We know nothing more about the plate, or its larger and more crazed brother but this one does have an impressed mark on the back.

The embossed mark on the back of the plate. It could be upside down!

Maybe an expert could tell us more about the maker and origins of this plate.
