This is English transferware in the Kioto pattern made by Bates, Gildea and Walker of Burslem, Staffordshire, England in 1880. The pattern was made in clobbered polychrome (many colors) transferware and in brown, blue and green. The pattern is a rather complex one, with several borders around a circular cartouche which contains a bird (much like a woodpecker) perched on a branch. Beneath the bird is a vivid blue segment which is repeated in the border pattern. The border pattern also includes cranes or herons standing and in flight. The pattern name of Kioto is a representation of the Japanese aesthetic period in design of the late 1800's.

Each plate has a value of $40.00USD for a total of $80.00.

They no longer make these, of course, but there are plates available online quite often. You would search for Bates, Gildea and Walker Kioto pattern plate as a search term.
