AESTHETIC RED TRANSFERWARE CAKE or SANDWICH PLATE
Ashworth Brothers Potteries
Hanley Staffordshire England
This large victorian aesthetic 10 1/4 " wide cake platter is transfer printed in bright red.
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 pair of female Oriole chatter in the branches. A very ornate geometric scroll separates a cartouche of a pair of exciting exotic birds in flight over a marshland.
The designs are the height of the aesthetic movement and the victorian eras love of nature.
Condition is excellent. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs. A stunning addition to your collection of transferware.
