This circa 1828-1830 blue and white transfer decorated Staffordshire dinner sized plate was made by Stubbs and Kent in the Longport area of Stoke-on-Trent. Also produced by Davenport and Joseph Stubbs. The pattern is titled "Fruits and Flowers" and depicts plump peaches and cherries on the face (center)with peonies and associated foliage, all of which are set against a stippled ground. The border of the plate is ornamented with 3 scrolling cartouches bearing flowers. The cartouches themselves are separated by other pendant style floral motifs. As seen in the accompanying photographs, the transfer decoration is crisp and clear with a rich deep blue color with a pearlware glaze.
Condition: I have several available, there are slight color variations from dark to very dark blue, one has a chip to the back not visible from front.
