Antique Bat Transfer Pink Lustre English Dish

This dish was made in the Staffordshire Region of England by Bailey & Harvey of Lane End. The center medallion is done in the bat transfer process. Bat transferware was a "new" process where the inked engraving plate was pressed onto silk, which was then transferred to the unglazed piece. Because it was so labor-intensive, production took place only from 1798-1820!!! So this piece is around 200 years old! There were three main genres: landscapes & manor homes; religious images; and juvenile pieces. They are found in black and in pink transfers, only occasionally in an orange color. This would be considered a juvenile subject pattern. A young child pets a fawn held by her nurse. There is a manor house in the background with elm trees framing the right side. The edges are rimmed in a lovely pink lustre. It is in excellent condition, measuring 7 inches in diameter. This small plate was made around 1820, and has an impressed stamp on the back, another rarity. Bailey & Harvey & Co. started in 1828 making the more traditional transferware and other hand painted ceramic pieces.
