Tall Ships Race Falmouth 1966 - commemorative souvenir plate by Myott / Britannia Designs
An original vintage commemorative pottery tea plate, produced as a souvenir of the "Tall Ships Race Falmouth [Cornwall, UK] 1966", in shiny white glaze with gilt rim, black printed lettering and a large colour transfer picture of a sailing ship; the base bears the green printed "MYOTT'S FINE WHITE "Ironstone" STAFFORDSHIRE ENGLAND" stamp, partly overlaid by the back-to-front black printed pictorial stamp of "BRITANNIA DESIGNS LTD DARTMOUTH ENGLAND".
This genuine mid-1960s vintage piece shows some signs of age (see condition description below), whilst there are various manufacturing irregularities and inconsistencies in the moulding, finish and decoration. Owing to its condition, please note that this item is offered for sale as a collectable or display piece only, and is not recommended for food use. It nonetheless displays nicely, and would make a pleasing addition to a collection of nautical memorabilia or items of Cornish interest.
