Grimwades (Royal Winton)
9-7/8" Dickens Ware Souvenir Plate
A very stylish vintage decorative plate featuring a colorful scene from "Oliver Twist." The plate is marked Grimwades "Dickens Souvenir," with a profile of Dickens instead of a logo. The round plate measures 9-7/8 inches wide across the rim, and has a raised verge in the middle. The border is a light tan color with gold trim, and dark brown bands. The central image of Oliver Twist running down a street is quite detailed, in muted colors of green and blue with brown buildings and pale purple roofs.
This Dickens ware plate has no chips or cracks, but there is fine overall crazing, which has begun to darken or brown, making it a bit more visible (see closeup photos, especially on back side). The gold glaze around the edge is fairly intact, with a bit of wear. The backside has two sets of pierced holes in the foot ring for hanging (the plate currently has a thick dark cord).
The reddish-brown mark says "Dickens Souvenir / Grimwades Stoke on Trent." I believe it is likely an older plate, perhaps from the 1920s (no "Made in England" or "Winton" mark).
