E. B. & S. Ward's Steamers Ironstone Plate - Date?

by Phil Easdown
(Kent, United Kingdom)

I am trying to date an ironstone plate which has 2 backstamps, the main backstamp is a belted garer surmounted by a crown. The wording reads "Mayer's Real Ironstone, Office 69 Pearl Street New York. The second backstamp in an ornate oblong box which states " Imported by A. E. Mather & Co Detroit. Sorry no pictures but any help in finding an approximate date for these marks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Phil

depending on the design varient, your plate dates to the 1840's or 1850's. China with "E. B. & S. Ward's Steamers" was found on the shipwreck "Atlantic" which sank in Lake Erie, USA in 1852.
