This is a pair of really nice purple transferware plates in a pattern called “Roselle”. Purple transferware is also referred to as mulberry. The scene on the plate is idyllic. There is a beautiful home set by a body of water. The house has a lovely porch with steps leading to the water. It is surrounded ny flowering shrubs and trees There are other structures and hills in the background. The border is also quite beautiful. There are baskets of flowers separated by flowering vines.
The plates were manufactured by John Meir & Son August 26, 1848. The English registry mark and manufacturer’s stamp is on the back.
There is some wear around the edges of the plates and light crazing due to age. 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 10” in diameter.
The price listed is for the two plates.
