Yes! Robin Hood!
You know, the one from Sherwood Forest!
To be a bit more specific......have you ever seen Robin Hood on a series of plates
by John Maddock & Sons?
A couple of years ago I found four plates at a yard sale. Each plate has a different scene
featuring Robin Hood. The transferware plates are square and the wide rims have a design
of acorns and shields.
The back of each plate has the John Maddock and Sons mark.
In the time that I've owned the plates, I've not been able to find much information about them. I don't know their age or value and I wonder just how many different scenes there are in the series. Here are the four designs I have.........
Robin Hood Meets Friar Tuck
King Richard Pardons Robin Hood
Robin Hood Captures the Pirate Ship
Robin Hood Wins the Silver Arrow
I want to know if there are still more designs.
Do you know?
Have you seen any plates like these?
