EXCELLENT LARGE VICTORIAN TRANSFERWARE PLATE
Grove & Stark Potteries
Longton, Staffordshire England ~ c. 1883
This Victorian aesthetic 9 5/8 " wide exciting plate is transfer printed in brown with under the glaze expert hand painting the 19th century pottery company is known for. The clear and crisp pattern features bristling rose flowers in bud surrounding scrolls and ribbons and geometric circles. One shows a young boy leaning against a fence sipping a Ginger Soda. The larger one has two exotic birds atop the scroll watching as a young boy holding on to his sister's coat tails. Delightful !!
EXCELLENT CONDITION. Clean, shiny and bright. No wear, no chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs.
