Beautiful, large antique Staffordshire blue and white transfer ware platter. This platter dates c. 1840 and the pattern is commonly known as "Wild Rose", referring to the beautiful floral border. This deep welled platter measures 18 1/2" x 14 3/4 and is in excellent antique condition with no chips, cracks, repairs, or scratches--wonderful!
The center scene depicts the country estate Nunsham Courtenay, Oxfordshire, England, seat of the Earl of Harcourt, set in the grounds laid out by Capability Brown c. 1780. It is a delightful expression of this bucolic estate with its rolling hills, ponds and streams, and the fine country house overlooking the lush grounds.
The platter is unmarked, though the pattern is documented in Staffordshire history. With its impressive size and excellent condition, it will make a beautiful addition to a collection of tranferware, whether as a wall hanging or as a star piece in cabinet or sideboard.
This platter weighs a bit under 6 lbs before packing, and shipping will be via USPS Priority Mail.
