Maling daffodil plate. Item 4608.This Maling plate is covered with colourful daffodils and it must have been a very welcome spot of colour in the aftermath of WWII. It measures 286 mm (11.25 inches) in diameter and is in very good condition apart from a couple of crazing lines. The decoration is formed by the process known as tube lining, where the outlines of the flowers and leaves are piped onto the plate in the same way as you would ice a cake. After the plate has been fired the colours are applied and fired again, but because the colours set at different temperatures this plate may have been through the kiln four or five times before the final glaze firing. This pattern was first introduced in 1936, but this plate carries an impressed date mark for January 1948.
