AESTHETIC DARK BROWN TRANSFERWARE PLATE

MELBOURNE PATTERN

Gildea and Walker Potteries

Tunstall, Staffordshire England

c. 1883

This Victorian aesthetic 10 5/8 " plate is transfer printed in very dark brown. The clear and crisp MELBOURNE pattern features delightful Japanesque geometric designs mixed with exotic palm trees and other tropicals. A shoreline with sailing vessels set to the horizon while a large flock of birds fly by.

An inset cartouche of a large winged Heron in flight within a Star and quarter Moon landscape and another inset of a Egyptian type butterflies circling a flower. This pattern has everything going for it. The pattern displays the victorian eras love of the exotic.

The piece is marked on the underside with an impressed registration mark, the pattern name and trademark that identifies the maker as Gildea and Walker, a pottery maker working in Tunstall in the Staffordshire region of England during the 19th century.

Never Used. The piece is in EXCELLENT condition, clean shiny and bright. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs. It is absolutely gorgeous - elegant and well potted, with richly detailed transfers reflecting the Victorian love of the exotic.
