I've been helping my neighbour clean out her house & she gave me a few items, this is one of them.
Oval plate 4" x 6"
Minton Chelsea Bird Pattern, by the Minton mark it dates between 1891 & 1912. The year cypher impressed into back dates it to 1919, that appears to be in conflict with the Minton mark.
Online reference to the pattern being produced for Ryrie Brothers Jewellers of Toronto. That company was purchased by Birks in 1904.
