RARE EARLY RED TRANSFERWARE PLATE

AFRICANA

E. & G. PHILIPS POTTERIES

Staffordshire England  1822 - 1834

This incredible large 10 3/4 " plate is transfer printed in a rich red.

The Africana pattern is incredibly scarce. Scalloped border, transfers of beading, teardrops, a goddess in a fancy boat pulled by swans, pairs of large peony type flowers, and spigs of floral bouquets, all surrounding two smiling lions, one standing and one recumbent.  Meandering stream and a castle background.  The underside bears a transfer printed maker's mark with the pattern name.

Condition is great.  Clean and bright.  No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs.
