This is a wonderful old brown transfer plate. The name of the pattern is "The Gem" which comes from the pearls and stones surrounding the scenes in the border. The scenes of people, buildings and water on the boarder are within cartouches. A nice floral decoration fills in around the other decorations on the rim. The main scene has stairs, fountain, trees, people, with water and buildings in the background. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Backstamp: Tiger over cartouche with THE GEM inside TJ&J Mayer Longport in ribbon
Measures: 8 3/8
