VICTORIAN BROWN TRANSFERWARE PLATE
SHAKESPEARE PATTERN ~ AVON RIVER WALK
Wallis Gimson and Co. Potteries
Fenton, Staffordshire England ~ 1884

This Victorian 8 sided aesthetic large 9 5/8 x 11 inch plate is transfer printed in dark brown. The plate is further enhanced by fabulous underglaze painting in shades of red, golden yellow, green and cobalt blue.
The pattern features an exotic geometric border with exotic flowers.

The River Avon is also known as the Warwickshire Avon or Shakespeare's Avon, to distinguish it from of the same name in the United Kingdom.
It has traditionally been divided since 1719 into the Lower Avon, below Evesham, and the Upper Avon, from Evesham to above Stratford-upon-Avon.
A series of locks and weirs made it possible to reach Stratford. The Upper Avon was tortuous and prone to flooding, and was abandoned as a means of navigation in 1877.

Never Used. Condition is good with three hairlines off the rim. Bright, shiny and clean.
