Wileman of Foley Potteries, Tunstall, Staffordshire, England in the 1880's. The floral Victoria design features oversized ruffled hydrangeas with beautiful small leaves on the branches. A decorative diagonal geometric design on one side for true aesthetic design, but what makes this desig truly exquisite is the inset with a bird.
