Description

Beautuful vintage English Ironstone side plate in red underglaze print. Image is of The Fleece Inn, Bretforton, Evesham in the county of Worcestershire, England.

Dated between 1973 and 1994 as, in 1973, English Ironstone Pottery Ltd became English Ironstone Tableware Ltd. In 1994 English Ironstone Tableware went into receivership.

The Fleece Inn is still in business today. Here is a little from their website about there history:

‘The Fleece Inn is without equal in England and has played an enormous part in six centuries of Cotswold history. It was originally built as a longhouse in the time of Chaucer by a farmer named Byrd and remained in the ownership of a single family for virtually the whole time. It has remained largely undisturbed in its architecture since the mid 17th century.

A pub steeped in history like the Fleece has many stories to tell. The building was already 71 years old when the Lancastrians marched by on their way to final defeat in the Wars of the Roses at the Battle of Tewksbury, and it was 200 years old when the Gunpowder Plotters rode past on their ill-fated attempt to blow up Parliament.’

Condition: Good. No apparent chips or cracks. See photos.

Stand shown in photos is not included.
