This is a very rare item.This is a luncheon plate from the Woods factory in Stoke-on-Trent ,Staffordshire ( see the mark at the back of the plate)

"The Wood family members have been celebrated potters who were a major force in the development of Staffordshire pottery. Ralph Wood (1715-1772) and Aaron Wood (1717-1785) were brothers. Ralph became famous for making his Staffordshire figurines and Toby Jugs. His work can be found in museums today. He was one of the first potters to imprint his name on his creations. Aaron Wood, his brother, was apprenticed to Thomas Wedgwood Jr.
Enoch Wood (1759-1840) was Aaron's son. He also apprenticed with Wedgwood. By 1783, Enoch was in the pottery business with his cousin Ralph Jr. In 1790 he partnered with James Caldwell (Wood & Caldwell) and in 1818, he bought out Caldwell and continued his work alone with his three sons, under the name of Enoch Wood & Sons. They produced large quantities of blue transferware, much of which was exported to the USA. The Historical transferware pieces they made for the USA are very collectible today and some of the pieces are valued in the thousands of dollars."

"Enoch's son Moses , the youngest of the three, continued the work , as did seven generations of his offspring after him.
Enoch lived to be 83 and died in 1840. The Wood factory closed in 1846."

"In 1865 a descendent of Moses, Absolom Wood, became the founder and senior partner in Wood & Son & Co. The site of the original factory was at Cobridge and was called Villa Pottery, but has since been demolished."

"The line moved forward from Absolom with three of his sons."
