I have a Barratts of Staffordshire Balmoral serving plate. Can anyone tell me anything about this.
I have several pieces of these and can't find anything on them....
Barretts of Staffordshire Ltd. A relatively unknown pottery, Barretts was once owned by Great Universal Stores but subsequently the subject of a management buy-out in 1986.
In 1992, Barretts purchased the Royal Stafford company in receivership and the following year the companies were amalgamated to become known as Royal Stafford Tableware, who produced exclusive high-end dinner services for such stores as Ralph Lauren.
Adding - Barrats started in 1943 or so, and lost it's name with the merger in 1992, so your piece is from between those dates.
