This is the largest (I think) of my oval meat serving dishes. As you can see it's plain white, it is quite heavy, and has 'Wedgewood & Co' stamped into the base. It is also faultless.
I bought it years ago at a UK Boot Sale, and this is the verbatim account of the conversation I held with the stall-holder owner.
Cro. How much is that old white plate over there?
Stall holder. Make me an offer.
Cro. I don't want to insult you.
Stall holder. I'm here to be insulted.
Cro. I'll give you a quid.
Stall holder. SOLD!
Every time I use it, I'm reminded that it was one of my best bargains ever; it'll come in very handy in the next few days.
N.B. Wedgewood & Co should not be confused with Josiah Wedgewood & Sons; the latter being a far superior manufacturer.
A very happy Yule, to all who celebrate.
