AESTHETIC BROWN TRANSFERWARE PLATTER
W. H. Grindley and Co. Potteries
Tunstall, Staffordshire England
This delightful Victorian aesthetic 13 1/4 " x 9 1/2 " serving platter is transfer printed in rich dark Brown with a pearlware glaze. I love this pattern, makes me dream of springtime.
The clear and crisp DAFFODIL pattern features oversized Daffodils, wild grasses and flowering phlox gracing the well of the platter with a landscape scene of a young boy watching a sailing vessel rounding a huge castle. Repeating vignettes of luscious Daffodils along the rim. The pattern displays the victorian eras love of nature.
The piece is marked on the underside with an impressed registration mark, the pattern name and trademark that identifies the maker as Grindley, a pottery maker working in Tunstall in the Staffordshire region of England during the 19th century.
The piece is in EXCELLENT condition, clean shiny and bright. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs. A tiny stilt chip to the rear rim normal to the making of the platter.
