AESTHETIC BLACK TRANSFERWARE CAKE PLATE
Ridgways Potteries Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire England c. 1885
This Victorian aesthetic 10 5/8 inch long x 9 inch wide cake plate is transfer printed in black. The pattern features some of the most outrageous looking birds the potteries artist could imagine. A rim of wildly tropical flowers with another outrageous bird. The well of the cake plate has aquatic foliage, fruit and flowers beneath two most unusual and exotic birds. A marvel of the imagination. Very good condition. Light glaze flaking and minor roughness off the outer rim and a few craze lines on the back.
