10 AESTHETIC BLACK TRANSFERWARE PLATES

INDUS PATTERN

Ridgways Potteries

Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire England
c. 1885


These Victorian aesthetic 9 1/4 " plates are transfer printed in dark black.  The pattern features some of the most outrageous looking birds the potteries artist could imagine.  A rim of wildly tropical flowers with hummingbirds.  The well of the plates have aquatic orchid type flowers beneath two most unusual and exotic birds.  A marvel of the imagination.

The plates are marked on the underside with an impressed registration mark, the pattern name and trademark that identifies the maker as Ridgway, a pottery maker working at Stoke on Trent in the Staffordshire region of England during the 19th century.

Great condition.
