Oh my this plate is so awesome! It is not only transferware but also Ironstone. It was made by E. Challinor between 1843 and 1862. After that, he teamed with his brother and it was E & C Challinor. The pattern is called Panama. In the center is a large castle like house with tons of trees and a bridge, definitely looks like Panama. Around the edge is a beautiful design of stripes, acanthas, and round pictures of the castle. The background is a taupe color.
It is 9.75" in diameter and has 1.75" depressions around the outer edge. On the back, as you can see in the pics, are some blackish looking circles. It looks like mold but I can assure you it isn't. Whatever it is, it is embedded into the pottery. I am thinking, maybe it is from heat. There is one spot on the front side too but it isn't round, it's a small line. There are no chips, nicks, crazing or cracks. It is a very fine piece of antique transferware! It's heavy, but the shipping cost is worth it.
Payment must be recieved prior to shipping. I fulfill your order within 24 hours after receiving your order M-F. If for some reason, I am unable to ship with in 2 business days, I will let you know so you can decide if it can wait, however, I strive never to do that. I do not usually work the weekend so if you order something Friday nite, it will most likely not ship until Monday.
I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING.
