impressive 20 1/4" oblong 19th century platter

i am pleased to offer this very nice 20 1/4" x 15 1/2" oblong platter from birmingham, england.  the makers yates, birch and spooner struck their touch and hallmarks on the back rim between 1828 and 1839.  the bottom is engraved "l. g. gist", the original owners name.  the platter is in very good condition with a 3/4" long (hard to see) hairline split across the rim and booge at ten o'clock.  this could be well restored for a small fee.
