Vintage small bone china plate by New Chelsea Pottery with a pretty floral design all over in pinks, yellows and greens. It has a scalloped edge with gold gild highlights on the edge.
It is stamped on the base with ‘New Chelsea, Made in England, Fine Bone China’.
There is some surface wear towards the centre of the plate. This can be seen in the photographs. No chips or cracks have been noticed.
The New Chelsea business was established by brothers R. H. & S. L. Plant in about 1900 and traded as Plant Bros until about 1912 when the ‘New Chelsea’ name was adopted. The company continued to be controlled by the Plant family and during the Second World War it was concentrated with the parent firm at the Tuscan Works of R. H. & S. L. Plant Ltd. Post-1945 the New Chelsea business was re-established and modernised, but in September 1951 the business and trade names were sold to Susie Cooper Pottery Ltd and the new business then operated under the name New Chelsea China Co. Ltd.
