Founded in 1876 by William Alsager Adderley in Longton, Stoke-On-Trent, England. The original company was called 'William Alsager Adderley & Company, and the marks used at that time were either "W A A" or "W A A & Co".

Later, they became part of the company that owned the Lawleys retail chain which was bought out by Pearsons, now famous for their publishing and media interests. The subsidiary, in the 1950's was known as Ridgway and Adderley,when joined by the famous china firm Ridgway. Pearson sold off Ridgway & Adderley to the Wedgwood group in 1964.

In the 1930's, Royal Adderley was often associated with hand-made bone china flower displays, hence adding the capitalized "FLORAL" to the Royal Adderly name with the English crown on their brown ink mark.

The reason I went on to relate this information is because this is a fairly common plate. One of six that depicted beautiful, life-like felines. You can find them on eBay as reasonable as
$4.00- $8.00, however, check the markings. The majority have a multi-color mark without the word FLORAL within it. These plates are probably anywhere from the 1950's or later.

But enough about the manufacturer, let's talk about this precious cat. The detail of this mini plate is incredible. They captured the texture and rough of his/her fur, that attentive cat look that normally only happens when a can is opened, and the " I love you, now feed me" stare.

This plate measures 4 inches across by 4 inches long. It is in excellent condition with no chips, flea bites, or crazing. Very minor rub wear around the brim the plate sits on. Exceptional for its age.

Free Shipping in the Continental US. $5.50 worldwide.

I am always happy to combine the shipping whenever it is practical.

Please feel free to ask any questions or request additional photos.
