LARGE AESTHETIC BROWN TRANSFERWARE CENTERPIECE BOWL
Staffordshire England c. 1880
This large outstanding Victorian aesthetic 9 1/2 " x 10 3/4 " x 4 1/2 " tall fruit bowl is transfer printed in dark chocolate brown.
The pattern features a Pheasant cartouche surrounded by magnificent tulip tree blossoms and foliage. A darker inset feature buds and blossoms of water iris. Surrounding all of this beauty is a wildly geometric border separated by small panels with cherry blossom branches. The outside transfers have vignettes of Oriole type birds. An exceptional pattern.
Great condition, very clean and shiny. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs.
