2 Color Chinoiserie Plate Blue & Brown Border Blue Willow Chinese Gardens
Brand Royal Tudor Ware
BLUE AND BROWN TWO COLOR TRANSFERWARE PLATE
Royal Tudor Ware
Stoke On Trent England
For consideration is this vintage blue transferware plate done in the two color process. The outer border is blue. There is an inner border that is a light gold - brown transfer of geometric banding. The face of the plate is blue and depicts an Asian / Oriental Blue Willow style garden scene with pagodas, floral foliage and mountains in the background. It is an absolutely beautiful piece and color combination!
Two Color transferware is highly collected, more difficult to find and more expensive to manufacture due to each color requiring its own transfer and firing. This plate is a lovely example of two color pieces
Measures appx 8"
