This semi-porcelain luncheon plate was manufactured between 1891 and 1910 by Henry Alcock, owner of a company called Stoke-on-Trent in England. It features a baroque Manhattan pattern with green with gold accents.

We hand-transferred an illustration of a flying red and black grasshopper gleaned from a 19th-century natural history book. We love how the practical illustration contrasts with the ornate china pattern creating an eccentric cabinet of curiosities vibe.

Our founder, Susan Davis, is a dedicated collector of all things old, beautiful and interesting. 

While button hunting, she often finds other collectibles she cannot bear to leave behind. This is how she came to own a substantial collection of colorful antique and vintage china plates.

The plates accumulated in our Louisiana design studio for many years until Susan discovered a process for transferring images onto china that sparked her latest product design inspiration.

Your plate will be one of only four in the world.
