Large Painted Ironstone Plaque, Ca. 1860

This is the largest painted plaque I have encountered. The pale yellow/apricot background has a centered three part reserve, two sections with birds in landscapes and the central one of a floral spray with lily of the valley, peony, lilies, turk’s caps, etc.. Each section is divided by gilt rococo C scrolls. Probably English
