Circular white ceramic plate from the "Century of Centuries" series. A blue image on the face features a portrait of W.G. GRACE in the centre, surrounded by a circle of bats inscribed with his scores of more than a century. Around these bats is a border of balls and bales, and the rim of the plate is gold. On the back is a facsimile of Mr Grace's signature, and the dates 1866-1895 and stamped 'Edition Limited to 750 plates'. The number '3' in blue is in corporated in the glaze verso but it is unclear whether this is the individual edition number or a painter mark..
