#2 Multicolor Bright Green Transferware Plate J F Herring English Hunt Scene w/ Basket Weave Border
From Copeland Spode's Field Sports series which was produced between 1890-1940 this circa 1930's plate with artwork by J F Herring depicts a hunter in traditional English hunting attire with two dogs at his side in pursuit of a fox. The bright green border is embossed in a basket weave design outlined in a thin deep burgundy/red line and a scalloped rim. Parts of the scene and border are hand painted with shades of purple, red, mauve, yellow and taupe - brown. It is simply stunning!
Measures appx 9"
Condtion: Rim flake at about 5:00 as shown in photo. It is really not very noticeable and still displays beautifully. Discounted 50% due to imperfection. I do have another plate from this series without flaw listed separately.
Excellent addition for a transferware collection or lover of English hunt scenes and hunt country!
