AESTHETIC BROWN TRANSFERWARE SOUP PLATE
MERSEY ~ SEAWEED + CORAL PATTERN
This large Victorian aesthetic 9 1/4 "soup plate is transfer printed in chocolate brown.
The clear and crisp MERSEY pattern features an exciting rim with bizarre geometric designs mixed with flowering cherry branches and various Seaweeds and Coral floating to the well of the plate which had a cartouche of three majestic sailing schooners out on the ocean being circled by seagulls. Another cartouche has a lovely young girl at the sea shore with her digging shovel making sandcastles, dreamily contemplating the beauty of her life at the seashore.
I have three different size plates this week for sale in this wonderful pattern, each with a different transfer. The pattern displays the victorian eras love of nature and travel to exotic lands.
Condition is EXCELLENT, clean and bright, appears to have never been used. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs.
