This is a really wonderful black transferware plate in a pattern called “Milan”. The scene depicts a body of water with buildings and trees along the banks. In the foreground, there are three people standing on the bank under a tall tree. The border is also quite beautiful. The rim is decorated with flowers that are surrounded by flowering vines.
The plate was manufactured by South Wales Pottery also called the Llanelly Pottery. The plate dates to between 1839 and 1858. The manufacturer’s mark is on the back.
There is a manufacturing imperfection on the front on the left. There is a large chip on the back rim of the plate and expected light crazing consistent with 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 plate measures approximately 9 1/4” in diameter.
