Item/Description: Vintage ca 1940s “Robin Hood Captures the Pirate Ship” Royal Ivory Ware John Maddock & Sons transferware plate.
This exquisitely and elaborately gold-trimmed, square-shaped with rounded edges, ivory ware (ivoryware) plate is part of the “Robin Hood Series” of plates by John Maddock & Sons.
Not only is the vibrantly colorful center-most scenic imagery of “Robin Hood Capturing the Pirate Ship” absolutely devastatingly beautiful to behold, but even the border imagery surrounding it is spectacular.
The border imagery, which is of a soft, soothing chocolate brown hue that oh-so-stunningly offsets the ivory ware background, consists of the following graphic symbols: an oak leaves/leaf pattern; acorns; an assortment of different weapons/armaments (bows & arrows, battle axes, spears, swords, knives, etc.); a crested shield.
This delightfully fanciful plate would be equally perfect for either decorative display, or for its originally intended usage as a luncheon/salad/tea party plate to enhance any dining table.

Condition Summary: Plate is in excellent vintage collectible condition. There are no nicks, chips, cracks, breaks, crazing or repairs. Colors remain eye-poppingly bright. The gilded/gilt trim remains strong. There are a handful of “from the factory” pin pricks present on the underside of the plate. There is a virtually invisible tiny “from the factory” pin head-sized bump on the surface of the plate situated on the left side, below the gold rim and immediately adjacent to/bordering the center imagery (a feel test revealed it, but it was never visually noticed until it was actually felt). There are a couple of teeny-tiny areas where the brown color is missing from the main scenic imagery (on the interior plank siding of the ship in the background behind the fighting Robin Hood and Pirate).
