SUPERB STAFFORDSHIRE BROWN TRANSFERWARE PLATE

AESOP'S FABLES
THE DOG AND THE SHEEP

Copeland and Garrett ~ New Blanche
Staffordshire, England
1833 - 1847

This outstanding and rare plate measures 9 inches wide. It is crisply transfer printed in a rich brown.

The plate has a wonderful irregularly scalloped edge and a border pattern of trios of large flowers separated by hydrangea blossoms, Fox heads and wild roses.

The central image illustrates the fable by Aesop of The Dog and the Sheep:

A Wolf found great difficulty in getting at the sheep owing to the vigilance of the shepherd and his dogs. But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and thrown aside, so it put it on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep. The Lamb that belonged to the sheep, whose skin the Wolf was wearing, began to follow the Wolf in the Sheep's clothing; so, leading the Lamb a little apart, he soon made a meal off her, and for some time he succeeded in deceiving the sheep, and enjoying hearty meals.
The Moral of the Story: Appearances are deceptive
The plate displays beautifully and is in Excellent condition.
