      Hi- I love this. I think it is OLD--before 1890 because it doesn't have a country name on it. Probably 1830's to 1850's when Victorian transferware was super popular. The handle is very cool.

      You can send it to me when you get sick of it ;-)

      Beautiful pieces, martinla56.

      This is from the "Transferware Collectors Club Message Board" and I think it will solve your mystery.

      The answer posted by Andrew Pye sounds spot on as he states the makers are Samuel and John Burton [Burslem, Staffordshire, active 1832-1845] and this is the "series" pattern" called "Domestic Scenery." You will see that your pieces appear to be part of this "series."

      Mr. Pye states "... the Burtons are the makers and Hardy is a retailer or importer and may be Henry Hardy earthenware & glass dealer of 67 Moorfields, Sheffield, England active 1837, which puts him in the right period. "

      Here is the Transferware Collectors Club post:

      Hi Martin, I love this. It caught my eye while listing, another unknown, transfer ware plate. The style of the flowers are quite similar. Ive this flowing style described as Aesthetic Movement Transferware.
