English delftware royalty plate with portraits of William and Mary circa 1695 London

Reference: 8943

Dated: c. 1795 London England

A very rare commemorative plate with portraits of King William and Queen Mary,
the work of the London potters probably from the Vauxhall area. The plate is decorated in shades of blue and orange with portraits of the crowned King and Queen naively rendered. King William is wearing Coronation robes and it almost certain that this piece would have been produced to commemorate this event.
