Adams Scenic Plate
Italian Scenery
circa 1930

If you are a collector of transferware, here is a real treat...a wonderful black transferware plate from Englands Adams potteries. It is entitled Italian Scenery. Trees envelope a bucolic castle setting...a castle & mountains in the background, two mn in a boat at the center. THe foreground shows a woman sitting at a park bench reaching out to a little billy the left is another goat and a cow. Large flowers and greenery are at the base. The plate has a beatifully embossed border of acrons and leaves. A thin gold paint adorns the outer edge. The black transfer has been hand painted with touches of blue, green gold and red/pink.

The plate is in good vintage condition. There is very fine allover crazing and some allover coloring/slight darkening of the glaze. Please know that the glaze has only yellowed some and very evenly at that, I believe adding a beautiful patina.

Measures: 10" diameter
