I have a couple platters that I really would like to know more about, am hoping someone reading this will be able to give me a little information.
You may enlarge the photos by clicking on them.
The first is an 8¾ inch by 12 inch platter with pine cones, made by W. H. Grindley & Co. Tunstall. Knowing how much I liked nice dishes, my dear friend, Lisa, gifted me with this platter that had been her grandmother's and then her mother inherited upon the grandmother's death. I have tried doing a little research and can't find much on this pattern. I did find it on Replacement's, Ltd. listed as GR1259, which is their code for an unnamed pattern. My thinking is the pattern is Oxford, produced in 1896...but what do I know?

This piece made by Spode Copeland may be a large dinner plate, platter, chop plate, charger or maybe the underplate to tureen. It was my late mother-in-laws and she always called it a chop plate. It is 10 ¾ inches, has a pheasant in the center.
The pheasant plate hangs on the wall with other red and white plates/platters and the pine cone platter in a kitchen cupboard as I often use it.
I am hoping that someone reading this will have some knowledge of these two pieces and let me know more about them. Thanks!
