W.H.Grindley & Co. (Ltd), New Field Pottery, circa 1880-1891, Woodland Pottery after 1891, Tunstall, Staffordshire, England.
This wonderful brown transferware shallow serving/soup bowl, circa 1882, is the "daffodil" pattern The motif consists of a English country scene with several cottage manors, a lake with small sail boat and child sitting in the grass. In the foreground is an over-sized blooming daffodil plant with other floral and grasses. The wide border is composed of cartouches of daffodils, separated and bordered by geometric bands and bars. The bowl measures 9 1/4" across and 1 3/8" in depth. The piece is unmarked except of a small impressed letter, which I believe to be a "G". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; light crazing; near mint. Lovely pattern
