A large, Ashworth Brothers, oval platter

This is a very large, 19th century serving platter, decorated with a blue and white transfer pattern known as "Indian Tree".

It was made by the Staffordshire pottery G L Ashworth Brothers and the pattern is typical of the Victorian era, with influences of the far east.

Large platters are an excellent way to present food and are perfect for Christmas dinner. There's no reason not to use old china tableware occasionally, but it should never be put in a dishwasher or immersed in hot water. Wash by hand with warm water and washing-up liquid.
