    Sorry for the poor lighting on this one. Is this Blue Willow? I need to take a break from posting and do some research of my own to start learning about some of this. I'm assuming if no picture of the bottom then nothing significant is there.

    Any and all information appreciated. Thank you

    Please don't assume that if there is "nothing" on the bottom, there's nothing to reveal!

    The way certain things are made and how the bottom is finished can offer good clues to when & where it was made.

    That does not look like the traditional "Blue Willow" design to me. Some similarities, but not the same.

    Ok thank you. I was unaware of that while taking pictures. This was done on a couple different sessions over a week or so. I was unaware of that at the time. I can always make a list of items that need more pictures and go seek them out when possible. At the time all I knew to look for was markings.

    Here is some info on the willow pattern and which elements are included on most versions. They are primarily transfer printed loosely based on Chinese patterns.

    Yours is hand painted and quite sweet.

    I think this is an early Blue Willow platter
    I was just looking through a book the other day and for some reason Spode Blue Willow is popping in my head.

    Will have to write a note to bring the book home to compare. The problem is remembering to bring the note and then remembering to read it.:eek::eek: Old brain!!!

    I can't remember if you said these items were your mother's or grandmother's, but they certainly had an eye for the early pieces of English china.

    Are you selling on ebay? You might want to consider putting some in an Auction house that has special auctions with English porcelain. I know there are some around, I just don't know where to point you.

    It was my grandmother and grandfathers collection, The last of which passed a few years ago. We are just now getting to the collection. My father has been going to local antique shows but none of the stuff posted has been brought that I'm aware of. We are planning on putting up an online store at some point, all of the posts i'm making are the groundwork for that. I don't respond a lot to post's because it's all just an overwhelming haze, but I'm filing it all away for when the time comes to research each piece. That's why I've started asking for any and all information to make it easier to research. And thank you for the complement, this was her passion and she spent most of her life working on her collection. Unfortunately thing's got complicated for numerous reasons before and after she died and we weren't able to download her resume of knowledge. My grandfather gave us a few tips on some of the stuff, and we can assume the things which were on display, mainly in the large chest should be of more value. If you get any leads on an auction site that would be great! We are mostly worried about selling something for a fraction of what it's worth, before my grandfather passed he got a vase to an auction that was on the cover of the pamphlet and it went for quite a sizable amount. We believe that we also have a piece of pewter from paul reveer's son so we will need to look in to that as well. I know that these thing's are worth much less than they used to be and I'm not trying to make the collection out to be some holy grail, I just want to be in the know so we don't get taken advantage of. On top of that I'm having fun going through all of these pictures and learning, though most of it hasn't sunk in. I'm taking somewhat of an interest myself and will be setting up a display case at my house and fill it with occasional "shopping" trips to the collection.

    Well, I remembered to look in my book.
    Didn't find much to ID maker.

    Do think your platter is late 1700s early 1800s.

    I now agree with Bakers that it has Willow influence, but is not Willow.
    I thought there used to be a site that helped id the maker by the elements in the band.
    Don't know what #1 is supposed to represent, #2 represents the Chinese bat.
