This has the same pattern as Blue Garland on earthenware and Fantasy on vitrified ware.  On the Apollo shaped ware it is Westbury d179.  This plate has the Genuine Ironstone backstamp, but thanks to the Crown Lynn Patterns book at the Museum and Janice's sharp eyes we have a name for it and don't forget my good luck for finding it Smile
It is exceptional in that it may never have been used and the white background is VERY white and the blue flowers look just so stunning.  It makes me wonder how one lonely plate came to be ...... what was it's life journey and how did it not get used, but got separated from it's plate family?
