This fine quality cabinet plate was made at Josiah Wedgwood's Barlaston Pottery near Stoke in Staffordshire.

It is from a collection of plates specially commissioned by the Archbishop of Boston. They feature images from Giovanni Battista Piranesi's celebrated 18th Century etchings - the Vedute di Roma.

This plate shows Bridge and Castle of St. Angelo.

I still have a few of these plates for sale - they each measure 10 1/2 inches in diameter.

The back of the each plate in the series records details about the scene.

The ceramic Piranesi plates which were commissioned by The Most Reverend Richard Cushing Archbishop of Boston.

Finally, there's a Standard Wedgwood of Etruria and Barlaston Mark together with the Mark of "Jones McDuffee & Stratton Co" of Boston who distributed the Plates.

Great display items or for formal dining events. All in very good vintage condition, perhaps a little crazing to the glaze on the back - this seems to be a common occurrence on these plates for some reason.

Probably limited to UK posting only. Multiple purchases will, of course, have postal discounts.
