BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO ~ Staffordshire England ~ c. 1880

This 7 1/4 " plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich chocolate brown with great color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of cinnamon brown, wine red and cobalt blue. The image is part of the Robinson Crusoe series coveted by collectors.
