Up above these shelves was a bit of a hodgepodge that I wanted to clear out. Found 6 Çey glasses from when we lived in Turkey, 5 match, they're going to Goodwill, a large glass vase that can still hold water and a small glass jug I immediately put some daffodils in.
And on the next to top shelf I found a Victorian blue and white plate. How do I know it's Victorian? Because of the diamond-shaped registration mark on the back. Looking online I saw the mark is for 1850, so my plate is more than 160 years old. Have no idea what the Missouri means because I bought this plate years ago in England. Anyway, it got to come out of the cupboard and sit on the counter for awhile.
The cupboard is all clean now, at least for a little while.
A little explanation on the Victorian registration mark
The IV at the top is for class of goods, the IV means clayware
The V is for the year:1850
The M on the left is the month: June
The 5 on the right is the day
The Rd in the middle means it's a registered design
The 3 on the bottom tells how many items were included in the registration.
