This is a lovely early brown transferware plate. The English registry mark is stamped on the back and dates the plate to May 24, 1849. I have not been able to locate the pattern name or maker for this plate. The pattern is very similar to “Medina” produced by Jacob Furnival from 1845 to 1870.
It has a pretty floral border. The center of the plate has a romantic scene with 3 ladies standing in a terraced garden in front of a lake. There is a building with tall steeples on the left side of the lake and tall trees on the right. There is a lovely water fountain to the left of the ladies and in the background is another group of people. The plate is 12 sided.
The plate is dated 1849.
It measures approximately 9 ¼”.
Manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust bump and unevenness in the transfer, etc. There is expected light crazing consistent with age. There is light discoloration on the back. There are no cracks or chips. It is in overall nice condition. Please be sure to look carefully at the pictures for condition.
