This is a stunning transferware platter or plate dates to 1883.  This very large serving charger is 11 1/ " in diameter.  The color is a rich sepia or wonderful dark chocolate brown with exciting bright polychrome painting.

The pattern is named PALMYRA, featuring a fantastic wide, busy band of sunflowers with a background of geometric shapes.  The well of the platter has a central flower pot full of oversized sunflowers surrounded by rows of buttercups and geometrical flourishes.

The piece is marked on the underside with a transferred registration mark, the pattern name the intials S. H.  that identifies the maker as Sampson Hancock, a pottery maker working in the Staffordshire region of England from 1858-1891.

The piece is in great condition and never used.  There are no chips, no cracks, no hairlines, and no repairs.  Light crazing to center.
