Aesthetic Polychrome Soup Plate ~ Rare Turtle 1882
AESTHETIC MOVEMENT ERA SOUP PLATE
Royal Worcester Potteries Staffordshire Region of England 1875
This large Victorian aesthetic 10 1/8 " dinner soup plate is transfer printed in dark brown and under the glaze is spectacular hand coloring in an exciting array of bright colors.
The printed transfer features a piece jointed bamboo along the rim. An ancient rock formation with a flowering tree and wild grasses encase a slow turtle cruising through the landscape. Quite rare to see an image of a Turtle during this Victorian era.
The piece is marked on the underside with the trademark that identifies the maker as Worcester, a pottery and porcelain maker working in England since 1751.
The piece is in great condition, shiny and bright. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs.
