RARE Brown Staffordshire ORNITHOLOGY Soup Tureen & Platter ~ 1870
AESTHETIC BROWN TRANSFERWARE SOUP TUREEN & MATCHING UNDER PLATTER
Brown Westhead and Moore Potteries
This early Victorian 14 1/2 “ long x 10 3/4 “ wide x 8 “ tall soup tureen is transfer printed in brown. The pattern features birds, of course. Designed/attributed to Pierre Mallet, this delightful plate combines the new Aesthetic and Japanese influences of the 19th Century, with a freer more naturalistic design and the use of asymmetry, along with the English love of nature.
Never used and in great condition. A repair to the rim of the under platter.
