AESTHETIC BLUE TRANSFERWARE PLATE
Wallis Gimson Potteries
Staffordshire England c. 1885
This large Victorian aesthetic 10 1/4 " dinner plate is transfer printed in dark almost flow blue. The pattern features a fantastic wide, busy band of Japanesque cartouches and alternating geometric flourishes with three hidden Butterflies among the flowers. Cascading cabbage roses spill into the well. The piece is marked on the underside with an impressed registration mark, the pattern name and the Beehive trademark that identifies the maker as Wallis Gimson, a pottery maker working in Fenton in the Staffordshire region of England from 1884-1890.
Great condition. Clean shiny and bright with a couple of utensil marks.
