This is a pair of really nice purple transferware plates in a pattern called “Corrella”. Purple transferware is also referred to as mulberry. The scene on the plate is a beautiful park setting. At the center is a woman sitting on a pedestal. She is holding two young children or infants. There are small and large urns in the foreground and statues, shrubs and trees in the background. The border is also quite beautiful. The urns are shown in four cartouches. Each cartouche is separated by a geometric pattern.
The plates were manufactured by Barker & Son circa 1850 to 1860. The manufacturer’s mark is on the back.
There is some wear to the glaze around the edges of the plate and light crazing due to age. There is a speck on the border of one plate where the glaze is missing. The camera has magnified the spot. Manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust bump and unevenness in the transfer, etc. There are no cracks or chips. Please be sure to look carefully at the pictures for condition.
The plates measure approximately 9 1/2” in diameter.
The price listed is for the two plates.
