Lowestoft border plates

Market Lavington Museum preserves the history of Market Lavington and Easterton in Wiltshire and not Lowestoft in Suffolk! However, this pair of plates does fit our collection criteria.

They were made by Booths, a firm operating in Tunstall near Stoke on Trent from 1891 – 1948 (and then becoming Botts and Coleclough Ltd). The design is called ‘Lowestoft Border’ but the local connection is that they were used by the Welch family of Market Lavington in the early twentieth century.

They are probably about 100 years old and in good condition and look lovely on display on the shelves in the museum kitchen.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
