This is a charming Thomas Forester and Sons Staffordshire Aesthetic Polychrome Butterfly Plate.
What a beautiful dish! The transferware decoration 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.
Very Good Condition: no chips or cracks; fine overall crazing with some staining.
This is a beautiful plate that could be displayed on a plate rack or wall or it would be nice mixed with a collection of Aesthetic Period items. Don't miss this one! We are always offering a nice assortment of vintage goodies, so please take a look through our shop. We would be pleased to combine shipping on multiple purchases.
