AESTHETIC BROWN TRANSFERWARE RAISED CAKE STAND ~ 1883

MELBOURNE PATTERN

Gildea and Walker Potteries

Tunstall, Staffordshire England  c. 1883

This large Victorian aesthetic 9 3/4 " wide x 4 3/4 " tall raised serving plate is transfer printed in delicious dark and lighter brown.  The MELBOURNE pattern features delightful Japanesque geometric designs mixed with exotic palm trees and other tropicals.  A shoreline with sailing vessels set to the horizon while a large flock of birds fly by.  

An inset cartouche of a large Hawk perched as the Sun rises and another inset of a Tulip Tree flower.  This pattern has everything going for it.  The pattern displays the victorian eras love of the exotic.

Never Used.  Condition is great.
