AESTHETIC BLACK TRANSFERWARE PLATTER

TENNYSON PATTERN

New Wharf Potteries

Burslem, Staffordshire England

c. 1884

This wonderful victorian aesthetic 15" long x 9 3/4 " wide platter is transfer printed in crisp dark black.  Wonderful impressed handles.

The pattern features very busy scenes of flowers, raspberry canes and raspberry fruit mixed with wild grains.  Sailing ships, a pond of Water lilies, bees flying past ripe berries and two fabulous cartouches, one of a countryside thatched home and the other of a garden bird peacefully perched upon a branch.  Geometric Japanesque ribbons float in the wonderful scene.  

Condition is great.  A small flake chip off the back of one handle and a great crazing line patina.
