Brand Royal Doulton
Antique Red/Pink & Black/Grey Two Color Transferware Plate
Royal Doulton Chatham
I just adore this pattern, The Chatham, by Royal Doulton. The name Chatham translates to forest settlement and is a city which lies in the heart of the Medway, a gathering of towns along the Medway River in Kent, SE England.
The majority of pieces in The Chatham each have different scenes, mostly idyllic and including views in the background of the Medway river and the Royal Navy dockyard, which was opened during the reign of Henry VIII and closed in 1984. The border of this pattern is light red/pink with tiny flowers, dots, and leaves.
The scene is a black/grey transfer which is framed by the beautiful pink/red border.
ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL & DESIRABLE OF TRANSFER PATTERNS!
Condition: No chips or cracks. There is some typical, age related crazing present.
