1883 T G & F B Huge Tudor Floral & Botanical Platter Aesthetic English Victorian Brown Transferware


Brand T & R Boote

 This striking dark brown transferware platter is very indicative of the love that the Victorians held for nature and oriental design.  I love the unique Tudor florals and the symmetrical way they are displayed around the platter leaving the center plain.  It's one of my favourites.
It was made by T G & F B (Thomas Gilbert & Fred Booth) and the pattern is called Lucknow
Circa 1883 with a British registration mark 
Measures: 18" x 14"
