No I've never seen this pattern angelfish.
Even the speckled background is not familiar.
Is there any stamps on the base?
The pattern has a very retro look to it.

There is a very faint red mark on the back, was a word or two words but far too faint to decipher.

Angelfish do you think this might be English?  It is lovely.

I haven't got a clue where it came from. That's why I am asking on here Laughing

Ok. It is difficult to be certain when we do not have a backstamp to look at but it is my belief that this plate is most likely English.

My immediate thought on seeing this plate was that it would be Australian, but that was a random thought with no justification.


The patterning is derivative of the mid-century leaf forms popular in Sweden, which reached NZ on the Crown Lynn coffee cans in the early 1960s, Vision (a direct copy of Rorstrand Tango) and Napoli.


The speckled background is something I don't recall seeing on Scandinavian plates, which tend to a crisp white so I will rule those out. This sort of pattern is North European  rather than South. I think then that as Maryr says England is a good place to start looking.


I've tried some searches using such keywords as leaf/leaves, modern/modernist/mid-century and speckle with no useful result. Some google searches have led to Pinterest, which could be a useful place to look for patterns but I work on an iPad and find Pinterest painful to use.


Another thought is to name suspected English potteries in a search. I had no luck with Midwinter, Meakin and Johnson/Johnston/Johnstone.
