For your consideration is this rare, early piece of steamship memorabilia, a very large platter that is stamped on the bottom "Boston Mails/Entered at the Registry Office of Designs" surrounding the image of a steamship underway. The upper surface of the platter contains the black transferware image of a large cabin with many tables and diners that is titled "Saloon". This ironstone dinnerware was produced starting in 1841 by the Staffordshire, England, potters T & J Edwards. It was made in 4 different colors, with this black version not having the rim decorations the other 3 colors had. Platters were made in 3 sizes. This platter, at 17 ¾ inches long and 13 ¾ inches wide, is surely the largest. It is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, hairlines or other damage, and only a few very minor surface anomalies like utensil marks and manufacturing/glazing oopsies. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Transportation\Boats & Ships\Other Boat & Ship Collectibles".com" and is located in this country: US.
