GLAMORGAN POTTERY'LADIES OF LLANGOLLEN' DESSERT PLATE. Rare dessert plate printed a scene depicting the famous'Ladies of Llangollen'. The plate was inspired by the story of two Irish ladies, Lady Eleanor Butler and Miss Sarah Ponsonby, who were born in the late 18. They moved from Ireland and set up home in a small cottage in Llangollen where they lived together for over 50 years.
The stylised scene depicted on this plate shows the women on horseback talking to a man carrying a scythe. In the background we see Llangollen, River Dee and Castell Dinas Bran. The plate is in good antique condition.There is a degree of wear the front, and age-related crazing to the glaze, but no chips, cracks or repairs. Marked with the Glamorgan Pottery Prince of Wales Feathers to the base. The items listed are old and may show signs of wear commensurate with age.
