VICTORIAN BLUE TRANSFERWARE PLATE
Brown Westhead and Moore Potteries
Staffordshire England c. 1870
This large early Victorian 10 1/2 inch wide plate is transfer printed in dark blue. Designed/attributed to famous Victorian artist Pierre Mallet, this delightful plate combines the new Aesthetic and Japanese influences of the 19th Century, with a freer more naturalistic design and the use of asymmetry, along with the English love of nature.
