AESTHETIC BROWN TRANSFERWARE PLATE
Made in Tunstall, a town in the Staffordshire Region of England by
T. Fell and Co. Potteries
This large Victorian aesthetic 10 1/2 " dinner plate is transfer printed in dark brown and under the glaze hand coloring in an exciting array of bright colors.
In the MITO pattern, the printed transfer features three separate groupings of Victorian artifacts, swords and horns, goblets and shields, bows and arrows. A bright blue Butterfly flits around a Japanesque swag and a cartouche of an exceptional Turtle. Hidden in the cartouche is a Serpent, a Fish and a Bee. Quite rare to see an image of a Turtle during this Victorian era.
The piece is marked on the underside with the pattern name and trademark that identifies the maker as Fell, a pottery maker working in Tunstall in the Staffordshire region of England during the 19th century.
The piece is in EXCELLENT condition, shiny and bright. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs. Appears to have never been used and is free of utensil marks. It is absolutely gorgeous - elegant and well potted, with richly detailed transfers reflecting the Victorian love of the exotic.
