Brown Aesthetic Transferware Plate 

GRAZING SHEEP

Copeland Staffordshire England 1880

This is a stunning creamware or earthenware plate, transfer printed in a rich chocolate brown or sepia. Originally part of a complete dessert service, the plate measures 7-1/2 inches in diameter with a gadrooned edge and scalloped rim.
The plate is decorated with a pastoral scene of sheep grazing in a pasture. A whimsical and winsome scenic view of farm animals at their place of rest. A wonderful reflection of the Victorian love of nature and the influence of the Aesthetic movement.

The plate is marked with an impressed "Copeland" in a semi-circle, along with "J 80" dating to the January of 1880. It was made by W.T. Copeland of Stoke in the Staffordshire region of England. It is of the highest quality transferware, suitable for adult tastes and standards.

The plate is in great condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The earthenware is somewhat gritty,  with a few larger specks of grit, typical of these early wares and adding to the unique charm of these naive wares. Light ware to the rim, consistent with age. Offered as is. It is amazing that this delightful survived over 100 years in such fine condition!.
