Circa 1902-07 Antique Royal Doulton English Transferware Well & Tree Holiday Platter

Absolutely stunning example of Royal Doulton's turkey wares depicting a hand painted wild turkey amongst mistletoe and holly, making this perfect to carry you through the Holiday season. This is the only well and tree turkey platter I've come across and I have had it in my personal collection for a number of years. It is footed and stands 3" high. The turkey at the center is a rich brown transfer which has been hand painted in a plethora of Autumnal colors, all underglaze and trimmed in a deep green.
VERY hard to find this pattern, especially in the well and tree piece!
