Salem Witch Plate by Daniel Low & Co. (Salem, MA., circa 1903-1914)
"Antique Salem Witch plate designed by Daniel Low & Co. of Salem, Mass. and made by Frank Beardmore & Co. of Fenton, England. This information is printed on the back of the plate. The Beardmore Company was in business in Fenton, England from 1903 to 1914, so the plate was made in that time period. The plate is in excellent condition with only general crazing and one tiny underglaze chip. Since the chip is under the glaze it happened in the making of the plate. The plate measures 7 3/4" across. The border is cat heads and crossed brooms."
