EARLY ENGLISH DARK BLUE TRANSFERWARE PLATE
MONTHS ~ JULY
Wedgwood China Works
Staffordshire England ~ 1898
This large late Victorian 10 3/8 inch plate is transfer printed in blue against an off white background showing good detail and good contrast. The best dark blue I have seen.
The plate is from the Early English 12 Months Series was designed by Helen J. A. Miles, an artist extraordinaire at the Wedgwood factories. This particular plate depicts the month of July and features images of a young girl and boy walking along the sea's shoreline with boats docked in the harbor beyond.
