Antique 19C Aesthetic Movement Brown Transferware Cheese Plate Platter Brown Westhead & Moore Cottage Plums


Brand Brown, Westhead and Moore

For consideration is this stunning, antique Staffordshire cheese keep platter by Brown Westhead and Moore. It dates to the 1880's and features flowering plum tree branches as well as the fruit itself.  Inset amongst the fruited branch is a thatched cottage.  The plums are hand painted in shades of purple.  Very striking!   Although the glass dome is not included, (one can be purchased at art stores like Hobby Lobby), this makes a stunning dish for a glass dome cloche...perfect for cookies, cheeses or just to show off.  The platter is footed and slightly indented where the rim comes up forming a very shallow area that is perfect for a cover.  The rim is embossed and because of the footrim doesn't actually touch the table when it sits.   Picture number three may show the elevation.  A very lovely piece!

Brown Westhead Moore were manufacturers of high-grade earthenwares and porcelain at Cauldon Place, Hanley (Shelton area), Stoke-on-Trent. Circa 1864-1904.

Measures: just under 11"

Markings: hand numbered and stamped

Condition: Amazingly wonderful! No chips, no cracks.  There is crazing and a little wear to some of the paint on one of the plums.  One or two minor rim flakes and wear to the gold trim.
