AESTHETIC BROWN TRANSFERWARE CAKE or SANDWICH PLATE
Ashworth Brothers Potteries
Hanley Staffordshire England
This large Victorian aesthetic 10 " wide cake platter is transfer printed in dark brown.
The clear and crisp MELROSE pattern features rich and wildly exotic Japanesque designs with a plethora of native rugosa rose flowers, rose buds and foliage. A songbird sings as it watches a pair of Butterflies.
A very ornate geometric scroll separates a cartouche of a pair of exciting Egrets in flight over a marshland. The designs are the height of the aesthetic movement and the victorian eras love of nature.
Great condition, a small line at the rim from normal shrinkage at the pottery kiln.
