Antique Early Staffordshire Circa 1850-60 Purple Brown Two Color Transferware Plate Working Farm Windmill Trellis Eon


Brand Spode

Rare 2 Color Transferware Purple and Brown

This handsome pattern by George Wooliscroft (1851-1864 Tunstall, Staffordshire), is found on a 12 sided plate. The brown center is complemented with a purple border. This plate shows one of a series of romantic scenes which always include windmills in rural landscapes.  The border features six cartouches alternating between windmills and people with horses. Each cartouche is separated by a pretty trellis covered in trailing vines.

I have one in my collection, which hangs in our Master Bath.  It's a beautiful piece!

Measures: Appx 9 5/8"
Condition: No chips, cracks although the footrim on the bottom does have a chip.  This doesn't detract from the piece as it is neither visible from top / front nor does it impact the way it sits.  There is some crazing, and a few surface scratches
Marked: as shown
