plate (food service)

Nursery plate with a picture of a woman in a yellow and blue dress going over to her child who has fallen over, with a field and a house in the background.

There is embossed decoration of vines around the rim. On the base is a maker's mark, saying 'Stevenson'. The plate was made in Staffordshire.
