EARLY CREAMWARE PLATE
BROWN TRANSFERWARE ~ FORGET ME NOT
probably Swansea Wales or Staffordshire, England ~ c. 1830
This is an early transferware plate made of a soft paste earthenware. The plate measures 7" in diameter. It is crisply transfer printed in brown with the blue puddling of pearlware glaze.
The scalloped rim's border is impressed with flowers, leaves and exotic fruit. Hand clobbered in shades of burnt umber, golden yellow, blue and dark green.
The central image transfer in lovely chocolate brown is crisp and well defined showing a garland of vining flowers surrounding " Forget Me Not ".
The plate is marked with a crown and was probably made in the Swansea region of Wales or Staffordshire region of England.
The plate is in very good condition, there are no chips, cracks or repairs. A fine little Welsh treasure!
