Rare Aesthetic Transferware ROSEBUD Beaker

Grove & Stark Staffordshire England 1875

This delightful beaker is c1875, transfer printed in forest green. Beautifully potted and plentifully decorated with an extravagantly asymmetrical layering of cartouches, three children within a scroll pierced with a rosebud, embellished with a butterfly, dragonfly and pair of love birds, a stylized half moon. The decoration resembles the Christopher Dresser design style of Old Hall earthenware.

The beaker bears a registration mark that dates it to the year 1885. It is marked with the pattern name ‘Rosebud’ and the initials of the maker Grove & Stark from the Staffordshire region of England. The quality of the decoration and detailing is outstanding for such a diminutive cup
It is in great condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. A minor spot of discoloration consitent with age. A superb example of the finest in the "Art for Art's Sake" attitude of the Aesthetic Movement, the love of nature and the exotic. This is a rare miniature example with a whimsical and winsome theme, for children of all ages.
