This wonderful old piece is done in English Pink / Red transfers on a cream background. The twelve sided plate has a scene with a balustrade, urn and people standing in the foreground. The background has trees, river, mountains and a sun with rays in the sky. The rim of the plate is decorated with a border of scrolled medallion vignettes. This piece has two flakes on the rim, please see pictures. For its age it is still a beautiful piece and in my opinion in wonderful condition. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE IRONSTONE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
