A beautiful antique transfer ware platter by Copeland. That's Spode after the years of the Copeland & Garrett partnership, and before Copeland's joining with his four sons in 1867. The delightful fluted edges and coupe shape are elegant, and the deeper foot is testament to the age of this piece. I'm not sure what the name of the pattern is, but its delicate curlicues are abundant and intricate with a bit of a Gothic flair.
This lovely platter is just about perfect for a pile of asparagus or green beans in season, or maybe a small mountain of fresh homemade sweet potato chips... yum!
CONDITION is very nice. There are no chips or cracks. There are a few minor utensil marks, and some minor wear to the gold in one spot where there is a roughness at one edge... when you look with a loupe you can see it is from a manufacturing event. The 'Copeland B' impressed mark dates this piece from 1847 - 1867. Measures 9 1/4" x 11 1/2".
This will look beautiful in your cabinet, and will serve you and your guests well when needed. Everyone needs an extra platter like this. Enjoy!
