      I was fascinated by the rough surface on this plate and wondered how and what foods might be enhanced by this sort of surface. I can add nothing about that but since I had a little time and some reference material I can give some additional background.

      That squiggle of letters in the center of the logo (read in their proper order DFH&Co) stands for D.F. Haynes & Co (Sons). This mark was used from 1896 until (as you said) 1914. Though called Chesapeake in the trade, technically Chesapeake Pottery ceased to exist in 1887. D.F. Haynes was actually the third occupant of the old Chesapeake Pottery facility.

      "Avalon Faience" was the name of a line produced by D.F. Haynes described as having "a fine body, ivory tint, and soft rich glaze ornamented by sprays of flowers in relief." (Pottery and Porcelain of the U.S. - Edwin Atlee Barber)

      The word BALT is an abbreviation for Baltimore, the location of the pottery.

      I can only guess that the small A under the logo is a decorator's mark.

      Fun plate - enjoy!

      Thank you for the wealth of information artfoot! You are right about eating off of such a detailed surface! Maybe crumpets or tea cookies. I couldn't imagine eating a knife and fork meal such as steak on this plate.
