BROWN TRANSFER WARE PLATE

Grazing Sheep

In 1849, W T Copeland commissioned artist Edward Duncan to paint a series of sepia water colors to inspire a selection of tableware. In the following year Copeland Spode registered the new Rural Scenes pattern. It was produced subsequently without a border design and was called Duncan Scenes. Around 1878 the production was limited and printed in brown on cream bodied earthenware in Amien embossed shape with Gadroon rims. The Copeland family retained a dinner set in this pattern. This plate is a wonderful example of the series...for collectors or for a lover of sheep and rural scenery.

Measures: 7.5"

Condition: Very good, a little wear around the edges.  At the time of listing there are 3 plates.  One has a small age spot, one has a tiny ink blot and one a tiny glaze pop. These are natural occurrences during manufacture and rather common on pieces well over 100 years of age.  NO chips or cracks. 

Marked: I have a few of these plates which are impressed with the word Copeland and a B below. Some have an additional number or letter combination of 5 &/0r Y 80
