EARLY ENGLISH BLUE TRANSFERWARE TILE
MONTHS ~ SEPTEMBER
Wedgwood China Works
Staffordshire England ~ 1879
This Victorian 6 " x 6 "tile is transfer printed in blue against an off white background showing good detail and good contrast.
The Aesthetic Movement center tile shows a young woman picking apples or orange. The winsome scene is finely detailed, with two birds sitting on the brick wall behind the tree and a basket of fruit on the ground. It is one of a series of seasonal scenes depicting the 12 months of the year, designed in the 1880s by Helen Miles. The images of the months were produced by Wedgwood in the Staffordshire region of England.
This spectacular plate with naturalistic imagery is a stunning addition to any collection of seasons and months series transferware images of country life.
