This is an English black transferware platter and covered server made circa 1882 to 1890
by Grindley, though other potters of the time made similar patterns.
This is one of the series of patterns that were based on mezzotint engravings by the English
artist John Constable in collaboration with the engraver David Lucas.
The series of transferware was called Scenes After Constable and represented
bucolic images of the Stour Valley in England. Grindley changed the borders and shapes
over the years as they produced items until 1994. Your two pieces date to
the early years when the fancy borders were popular, early to late 1880's, and the platter
has a current value of $275 and the server a value of $125.00 retail.
