ref. Jones & Joseph, SWANSEA PORCELAIN p121 for the moulding. This plate is particularly important due to its pattern number. On p19 of the above text, they state there are 150 patterns on Swansea identified, with 70 having a pattern number; the highest number known is 705, and they state .......it is reasonable to anticipate that more will be identified in the future..... This plate is such a case, with the pattern numbers being extended to at least 721.
