This very old transfer ware plate in black on white boasts a charming wetland scene invoking the naturalism of the Aesthetic Movement. A stork stands on one leg in the water amid cat tails, lotus pads and flowers as kingfishers and dragonflies flit about. The droll border of the plate displays dragonflies, lotus blossoms, and rather unlikely fishes which swim on the surface; all are inter-twined with cat tail plants. Plate measures 8” in diameter.

Under glaze backstamp in black reads Osborne (pattern name) to the right of the diamond-shaped registration mark with T. Elsmore & Son above and Tunstall / England below. The registration mark translates to November 20, 1879 (ref. The Potteries). There is also a large impressed letter J.

There is uniform crazing, usual in transfer ware of this age, some stray black color and tiny freckles from manufacturing, and one utensil mark about 1” long which does not affect the picture. Overall condition is excellent and we know you will love it!
