This is a charming Thomas Forester and Sons Staffordshire Aesthetic Polychrome Butterfly Plate.
The transferware decoration on this piece features 2 butterflies and a bug with abundant flowers and foliage. The colors include different shades of pink, blue, yellow, green, and brown.
It is marked with an early mark that states "Daisy; T F & Sons" with an illegible, impressed mark. It measures almost 10 ½" across.
Condition: no chips or cracks; fine overall crazing with minor staining.
This is a beautiful plate that could be displayed on a plate rack or wall. It would be nice mixed with a collection of Aesthetic Period items or perhaps vintage plates with butterflies. Don't miss this one!
