Vintage English Wedgwood Blue Willow Pattern Transferware Platter

This 17" wide platter is the Blue Willow, designed around 1790 by Thomas Minton who engraved the design for Turner. Inspired by the china that England imported during the late 18th century,this design had various stories of the faithful lovers. On the right side of the platter is the Chinese dwelling of the Mandarin whose daughter falls in love with his secretary, who was promptly fired and threatened with death. The couple escape crossing the bridge, chased by her father (lower left side). They escape to a small island, illustrated with small trees, upper left. Years later when they are found, the secretary (Chang) is killed and his sweetheart (Koong-see) sets the home on fire and dies. The Gods transform them into 2 doves, shown at the top of the page. This pattern has been in continuous production for the last 215 years. Collector's clubs for this pattern began forming in 1986. I have not been able to date this particular item.
