"Fables" ~ mulberry

The fable shown on this plate would appear to be La Fontaine's The Lobster and her Daughter.

The dinner plate is 238mm across flats. Earthenware.

As well as the series backstamp, there is a printed number "18", which is presumably the number in the series, and an impressed registration diamond for 6 December 1882, parcel 2, which relates to the shape, and an impressed "T. C. BROWN-WESTHEAD / MOORE & CO." The importer's mark is rather spectacular. Odessa, then in Imperial Russia, is now in the Ukraine.

"Fables" ~ mulberry on blue

The fable envisioned here is almost certainly the wanderer returning from La Fontaine's Les Deux Pigeons, which was rendered into English verse, probably by John Hawkesworth, and included in Thomas Bewick's Select Fables of Aesop and Others as "The Two Doves".

The tall comport is 229mm across flats, and 136mm tall.

As well as the series backstamp, there is a printed number "4", which is presumably the number in the series, and a faint impressed registration diamond for 6 December 1882, parcel 2, which relates to the shape, and an impressed "T. C. BROWN-WESTHEAD / MOORE & CO." There is also a trace of a registration number, but it is incomplete.

As well as the series backstamp, there is an impressed registration diamond for 6 December 1882, parcel 2, which relates to the shape, and an impressed "T. C. BROWN-WESTHEAD / MOORE & CO." The registered number relates to the print series, and dates from 1887.

On each plate, as well as the printed "CAULDON / ENGLAND" and partial Registered number, there is an impressed "CAULDON", and "ON", or possibly "NO", and a number of uncertain significance. The Registered number appears to be the same as on the "Variete" charger above.
