Your plate was made in England in December of 1869 in the Staffordshire district.
If you can post a picture of the whole plate perhaps someone may more easily identify the pattern.

Actually the design was registered in December of 1869, doesn't necessarily mean the plate was made then.

They didn't change the date code for each month of production.

Usually the designs lasted for a few years, although some very popular ones lasted decades.

Very Egyptian revival in design which was popular in the 1870-1880 period.

Thanks. Yes I agree the pattern is not the most common one, whwn I think "England" I think figurativ, (herds)romantic, naturscenery, countryside,lovely buildings, and horses etc. Aha the fahsion was like this att the end of 1800, I did not knew! Than

Katarina,

Welcome to the forum. Don't worry about your English, I'm sure your Swedish is very good!

Welcome to the forum, Katarina. Fabulous plates! Best of luck finding more in this beautiful & unusual pattern. 'Replacements' (a large matching service in the US) doesn't even list this pattern so I suspect it's quite rare - at least in this country.

Thanks all of you, I hope that I "pop in to the plates" one day or another, I hope for the best.
