This dinner plate was recovered from excavations at the Quindaro Townsite, an archaeological district now part of Kansas City, KS. The decoration on the plate was deliberately blurred, a hallmark of flow blue patterns. The back of the plate has both a printed and impressed maker's mark, indicating that it was manufactured by Podmore, Walker and Company of Tunstall, England, who operated c. 1834 to 1859. The pattern name of the plate was Manilla.

Date: 1857-1863
