Boy on a Buffalo Plate, 18th C English Blue Transferware, Antique Pearlware

Here is a piece of English ceramics history for you! This pattern was one of the first to be transfer printed on earthenware. The pattern is also called simply "Buffalo". It was produced by several English potteries, in many variations, but almost never marked.

In Robert Copeland's book, "Spode's Willow Pattern and other designs after the Chinese", he devotes a 17 page chapter to "Buffalo" pattern.

This shaped dinner plate is 9-1/2" in diameter and is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. There are 3 unglazed stilt marks on the back rim. The glaze is bright and shiny. There is a blue rosette mark on the back.

This particular version of "Buffalo" can be found in photo number 25, on page 109 of Copeland's book. This is indeed a rare find!
