Brown Transferware Incised Plate ~ Cherub 1873
Aesthetic Movement Brown Transferware Plate ~ Cherub
Incised Holland Pattern
MINTON POTTERY Stoke, Staffordshire England ~ c. 1873
This is a stunning plate measuring 9 inches in diameter. The transfer color is a rich bittersweet chocolate brown and further enhanced with hand painting in green, burnt orange and ocher red, professionally applied.
The rare plate is decorated with a gorgeous inset of a boy or cherub's head, heart on scarf around his neck, surrounded by swags of pearls and flowers-- a delightful tribute to the Victorian love of nature and the exotic. The piece is marked with the backstamp of Minton, a pottery maker in Stoke in the Staffordshire district of England, c. 1873.
Never Used. The piece is in great condition and displays beautifully, clean shiny and bright. Very minor flaking to the outer rim.
