Grazing Cattle at an English Tudor Farmhouse

In 1849, W T Copeland commissioned artist Edward Duncan to paint a series of sepia water colors to inspire a selection of tableware. In the following year Copeland Spode registered the new Rural Scenes pattern. It was produced subsequently without a border design and was called Duncan Scenes. Around 1878 the production was limited and printed in brown on cream bodied eartherware in Amien embossed shape with Gadroon rims. The Copleand family retained a dinner set in this pattern. This plate is a wonderful example of the series...for collectors or for a lover of cows and rural scenery.  The black transfer is handpainted with shades of green, burgundy and gold.
