What's for sale?

This is a medium-sized, Victorian serving platter, decorated with a blue and white transfer pattern known as "Brugge".

It was made by Staffordshire pottery W A Adderley and the beautiful pattern appears to be their version of Delft. Naming it after the Flanders capital is certainly a reference to that part of the world.

Large platters are an excellent way to present food and are perfect for Christmas dinner. Old china tableware can continue to be used and enjoyed, but it shouldn't be put in a dishwasher or left immersed in hot water. Wash by hand with warm water and washing-up liquid.
