Description:
This small earthenware trade plate is printed in blue underglaze with the Standard Willow border.  The center was used to advertise this pottery business in Hudson, Southsea, England. To date, I have not been able to find any information on the Pottery Gallery, but it was likely a retailer. There are other examples of these trade cards in my collection. See, for example P103  and P187.
Condition: Very good.
