EARLY ENGLISH BLUE TRANSFERWARE PLATE
MONTHS ~ APRIL
Wedgwood China Works
Staffordshire England ~ 1898
This large late Victorian 10 3/8 inch plate is transfer printed in blue against an off white background showing good detail and good contrast. The best dark blue I have seen.
The plate is from the Early English 12 Months Series was designed by Helen J. A. Miles, an artist extraordinaire at the Wedgwood factories. This particular plate depicts the month of April and features images of two young children sheltered from April showers.
Excellent condition, never used.
