This English transferware bowl is by Wedgwood in the "Landscape" pattern. The backstamp mark dates it to 1879. It is absolutely perfect for serving veggies!
The rim has a beautiful border of old English roses (David Austin style), grape leaves and peony blossoms. The outer band is a string of beads strung on a line line under a dark scallop. The center medallion is beautiful! A man on horseback engages a bonnetted woman in the grassy foreground. Rocks, and bushes are scattered throughout. Two trees rise on each side from the foreground. A small sailboat floats in the lake dividing the scene. In the mid background is a stately manor home with several out- buildings. There is a cute log cabin on the left. This reminds me of a scene from a Jane Austen novel. I LOVE the floral banding all along the outside, which mirrors the inner rim on a smaller scale.
The bowl is 9 inches in diameter. The rim is 1 inch and the bowl is 1 1/2 inches deep. It stands just shy of 2 inches tall. I especially love this dish as it is a tiny bit "warpy" around the edges, and looks hand thrown. The transfer is clear and crisp. There is a small crack along the bottom pedestal of the bowl, but it does not affect the piece, which is in really good condition.
