It is unmarked, but most likely made by William Turner of Lane End, active between 1803 and 1829. It could also be made by William & John Turner partnership which was in business ca. 1792-1803.
"Turner Willow" pattern was also used by Miles Mason and his son William around 1810-1815 who acquired Turner's original plates, but comparing all three patterns from reference sources, I would say the platter is closest to William Turner's rendering of this pattern so dates ca. 1803-1829.
