Due to wear, these images were taken from a pair of plates, the front from one plate, the back from the other. The back stamps are identical, but both pattern numbers are included.

The fact that this is a seconds pattern probably explains the staining on the high points where the glaze has drawn back.

The "J. P. Westhead" service

For table wares from the same service see here.

The service bears no pattern number but it is likely it would be in the 9000s if it had done so.
Each plate has a different view of somewhere in Europe.

Joshua Proctor Westhead (1807-1877) was a Manchester merchant and manufacturer, and Director of the London and North-Western Railway Company. He was Member of Parliament for Knaresborough 1847-1852, and for York 1857-1865 and 1868-1871.1 His father, Edward Westhead, had married Ann Brown, heiress to Lea Castle at Wolverley, which property Joshua duly inherited.2 By Royal dispensation in 1850 Joshua changed his surname to Brown-Westhead, at which point he was permitted to quarter his arms with those of Brown.3 Thomas Chappell Brown-Westhead, who took over Cauldon Place from John Ridgway, was his youngest son.4
The presentation, along with a magnificent service in silver, was made on Tuesday 15 June 1847 at the Albion Hotel, Piccadilly, Manchester, by the shareholders of the Manchester and Birmingham Railway Company in recognition of his work as Chairman of that company prior to its absorbtion into the London and North-Western Company.5
