T.G.B. Purple Transferware Plate Pekin Pattern
This is a wonderful T. G. B. purple transferware plate in the pattern referred to as Pekin. The manufacturer's mark is printed on the back. It reads T. G. B. underneath a circle with the pattern name within the circle. The plate is white with a very nice transfer of an oriental scene in the center. There are two oriental men in the center. One man is standing and the other is sitting and scooping something out of a cylinder. There are trees and flowers and lovely decorative fencing in the background. The borders are beautifully decorated with a floral pattern, lines and dotted lines.
It dates from around the mid to late 1800's.
The plate measures approximately 7 ½" in diameter.
The condition is fair. There are two hairlines along the rim that show in both the front and back. One is approximately 1 ½" long and the other is about 1 ¼" long. There is a small chip on the outside rim near one of the hairline cracks. There is some light discoloration on the rim.
This would be an excellent addition to your transferware collection.
We have not been able to positively identify this manufacture’s mark, but attribute it to Thomas G. Booth who is know to have manufactured this pattern.
