A wonderful large Blue & White Transferware Platter from the Italian Scenery series made by the Staffordshire Pottery of Enoch Wood, circa 1825. A great romantic scene of the northern Italian city of Turin, with an unusual overall pattern depicting three women being entertained by minstrels on the bank of the River Po. This scene is bracketed with dense foliage rising on either side to form a canopy over the view. The platter measures 18 3/4 inches by 14 5/8 inches and is in excellent condition with only scuff marks to the bottom from use. It is marked with both a printed mark giving the pattern name (ITALIAN SCENERY TURIN ) and an impressed maker's mark (WOOD). A wonderful piece for collectors of Blue & White.
