This lovely blue transfer printed soup plate measures 9 1/2" in diameter. It has a landscape in the middle with a centurion driving two horses pulling his chariot. There is a Greek-Roman landscape. The border has four cartouche landscapes with similar images. The top and bottom cartouche images have tigers pulling the chariot. The other two have fountains. The bottom is marked with the pattern name, TRIUMPHAL CAR and the maker's initials, J.&M.P.Bell. This soup is mid 19th century. Very good condition. There are some edge wear and crazing but no chips or cracks.
