A large transferware soup tureen and underplate by William Brownfield. Typical of pieces from Aesthetic Movement the set features a wealth of geometric designs. The lid has been decorated with other colors added to a restful scene that includes sheep, pastures, and trees. The top handle has five small geometric shapes painted in blues, greens, and burnt orange. Some of the design and the colors are similar to Brownfield’s pattern called Wisconsin.
A perfect fall compliment for any sideboard or hutch.
