This plate is designed for the sister of WH Rogers (b.1827) hence the monogram'MER' for Mary Eliza Rogers. Historical significance: This design is part of the W.Harry Rogers Archive and to quote the information on the archive provided by 'RW' on 6 February 1998 on the registered file 1997/1476: 'It is extraordinarily rare to have this kind of documentation at this level of production for the middle decades of the 19th century. The fact the (sic) the state of the designs ranges from rough sketches to finished drawings and proofs allows the pieces to document the design process very closely.'

production_note
The inscription on the design comprises instructions for the manufacturer. The design is probably that for a ceramic dessert plate to be made by the Minton Factory. It is probably for a type of earthenware called majolica. The particular sort of majolica is that with painted rather than inlaid decoration. It is for majolica glazed with coloured translucent glazes. It is not a design for inlaid encaustic stoneware.
