Simon wanted to glue the thing on and off
As part of my FMP I had gone to Bowes to do some drawing,and in the one cabinet I saw some china that reminded me of the plate...the faces are ugly oops! unmistakable. I showed a friend and ceramicist the piece and she, Liz agreed there where similarities.
Long story short after yesterday, it is indeed a sixteenth century piece.... will have to come back with more details as ,have not got my notes. Need to verify its provenance, it depicts a religious scene which could/would have been smashed during the reformation? King Henry ....
