Again another set ive had hanging around which i just cant seem to pin down.
Its a set of three plates, they each have a different although conected scene (im not great with histroy so bare with me) i think they dipict 18th century courting couple, the clothes are different i each picture but i would assume its the same couple.
The plates are each a diffrent shape, but all guilded around the edge and transfer printed on the underside in black. They look and feel very much like Chance glass although ive never been able to find the pattern (i dont yet own the book, but will be hopefully getting it very soon)
The smallest plate is oval 22.5 by 14cms the next one is round with a pulled up shaped rim, 21.5cms in diameter and the third plate is square 19cms across.
Ive had them packed up for such a long time it would be great to finally know what they are
many thanks
michelle

I don't think you'll find very much. David didn't when he was writing his book
