Staffordshire blue and white transfer printed pottery tile dog sheep shepherds.
A very good framed Staffordshire blue and white printed pottery tile featuring a pastoral scene of two shepherds with their dog and flock of sheep in a romantic country landscape. I have not been able to trace the pattern but is typical of those from the nineteenth century where numerous different elements/styles were brought together to form a single scene. Housed in an Oak (?) frame with gilt inner section.
Size: Tile = 6" square - Frame = 10. 5/8" square Weight: 30 oz. or 810 g All measurements approximate.
Condition: Very Good - very light scratches to the glaze. no visible chips or cracks. Occasional marks and slight separation to the joints of the frame. Please see all photographs and as ever I am happy to send more and answer any questions you may have.
