This large victorian 8 sided aesthetic 9 5/8 " 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 clear and crisp pattern features a double row of geometric shapes along the rim and fantastic wildflowers and blooming Orchids surrounding two cartouches of The Rialto Bridge in Venice and The Bridge of Sighs Venice, Italy.
