RARE STAFFORDSHIRE TRANSFERWARE CENTERPIECE FRUIT STAND
ARCTIC SCENERY
Staffordshire England
c. 1835
Fresh from our recent buying trip to Enlgand, we are pleased to offer this stunningly beautiful “Arctic Scenery” centerpiece, a very generous 11 1/4 inches long x 9 inches across x 5 1/4 inches tall, transfer printed in blue.
Rare to find this form in this amazing pattern.
The scalloped rim plate features cartouches of wild animals each separated by garlands of flowers, surrounding a central image of Eskimos and their dogs and canoes with huge ice formations in the background.
The animals in the borders are said to come from copperplate engravings from two sources: Bewick's "General History of Quadrupeds" and William Jardine's "Natural History". The central image is from the 1821 and 1824 illustrated exploration journals of Sir Edward Parry from his travels in the northern part of Canada.
Virtually no wear. Great condition with a 1/4 inch chip along the bottom base. Displays beautifully. An outstanding example of an extremely rare and spectacularly beautiful series!
