ROYAL STAFFORDSHIRE RED TRANSFER WARE PLATE

For consideration is this plate in one of the most beautiful pastoral patterns found on transferware. It depicts two men in a wooded area chopping down trees. A mother and her children sit atop a huge log already fallen. A small boy has one leg up over the log as he tried climb atop. To the right, a woman balance upon her head a bundle of small twigs tied together. To the left is a small dog sniffing from a ewer and basket. In the background a horse drawn cart is preparing to pull an alrelady loaded log from the forest. The border in this pattern is one of may favorites, combining a unique blend of lattice and ivy framing insets of farm implements...rake-hoe-shovel and a beeskeep. Each piece in this series has a different design so check my other listings as I've got more in this pattern.
