    196 years old Ridgway plate from England

    Mount Saint Michael plate.
    I'm looking for any imformation I can get on this plate.
    This is what I know or think I know. It was made by Ridgway, J & W.early 19th century ) English potters in parternership during the early 19th century untill 1830 at Hanley, Staffordshire. Transfer-printed 1814-1830.
    On the back of the plate- Published by Ridgways 1814. A couple of dimples on the right side of the flower pot and below , Renaissance England.
    There is another mark 11 over 22.

    What I don't know is what the 11 over 22 means?
    Is there a collectors website or a museum web site I can check this plate out at in England or any were else?
    What might it be worth?
    I would like to see a modern picture of Mt Saint Michael.
    I paid $20. at auction around five years ago.
    The date 1814 reminded me of the song -Battle of New Orleans. Maybe they ate a little bacon and beans off this plate.

    I found a few links and some info on your soup bowl that might help. No idea what the 11/22 means.

    China Search. This site might be able to help you more

    A website to purchase replacements pieces - Your plate (soup bowl) is pictured here in blue.
    Need to register with the site for more information.
    http://www.replacements.com/webquote/RIDMOSM.htm#



    Other Infomation I found from 2 different websites (they kinda conflict a little and I really have no idae which one is correct)


    http://www.figurines-sculpture.com/r...eries-ltd.html
    Ridgway Potteries Ltd was founded possibly c.1744 in Staffordshire, England by Ralph Ridgway - see also Colclough China.
    Itís a shame that once ascendant names in the world of fine bone china like Ridgway fizzle out and lose their magnitude.

    Ridgway Potteries had a celebrated history. You can trace the Ridgway family name back to the very earliest days of the Staffordshire potteries, along with Adams and Wedgwood.
    In the 1800ís William and John took over the Cauldon Works, founded by their father Job Ridgway in 1802. John, taking the Cauldon works while William went his own way with the Bell works inherited from uncle George. John Ridgway, was appointed Potter to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, earning a high commendation at the 1851 Exhibition. You canít get better acclaim than that as a potter.

    The exhibition catalogue says Ridgway was: 'One of the largest and among the best conducted of the many factories of Staffordshire'. Ridgway established a School of Design and founded a scholarship which is still available today (see University of Manchester). However, all these accolades were not enough, and by the 1940ís The Ridgway Pottery was preparing to merger with the Booths & Colclough China Company (see above).
    Royal Doulton acquired the two firms in the 1960ís. Some of the brands associated with the Ridgway Pottery / Colclough / Booths are Royal Vale, Royal Stanley, Royal Cauldon, Royal Adderley (floral and Figurine China factory), Royal Semi Porcelain and Portland (tea and dinner ware). China companies associated with the Ridgway Potteries Ltd in various capacities are Brown-Westhead, Moore & Co, E.W. Brain & Co. Ltd, Pountney & Co. Ltd and Booths Ltd (Booths & Colclough Ltd).

    For more on any of these companies go to the English manufacturers quick reference list
    ( http://www.figurines-sculpture.com/e...china.html#mql )which is on a separate page.
    RIDGWAY : Cauldon Place, Hanley, with several differing names from 1802 to 1858 :Job Ridgway, 1802-08, earthenwares
    Job Ridgway & Sons, 1808-14, earthenwares
    John & William Ridgway, 1814-c.1830, earthenwares and English china
    John Ridgway (& Co), 1830-55, earthenwares and English china
    John Ridgway, Bates & Co, 1856-58, earthenwares and English china.
    Subsequently, Bates, Brown-Westhead, Moore & Co.
    RIDGWAYS, Hanley, 1879-1952, Earthenware : they started producing since 1873 under a different name



    http://www.chinadetectives.co.uk/rid...na_pottery.htm
    The origins of Ridgways can be traced back to 1838 when William Ridgway formed a partnership with his son Edward John Ridgway and Leonard Abington. They relocated to the newly built Bedford Works in 1866, and from 1879 they traded as Ridgways, until 1920 when the pottery was renamed to Ridgways (Bedford Works). It remained under the Ridgway family control throughout this period until 1929 when the firm was taken over by Cauldon Potteries. The Ridgway name was retained and they obtained Limited Company status in 1955. In 1964 they became part of the Allied English Potteries and subsequently part of the Royal Doulton Group.
