Set of 8 Blue & White Transferware Cereal / Soup Bowls English Transfer Ware Scenic Ferry Boat Crossing Roses Cottage


Brand Swinnerton's

Here is a pretty set of 8 nicely sized cereal or soup bowls by Swinnerton's of England in a pattern called The Ferry. It is decorated in great detail with a small ferry boat on the river crossing from one side to another where three women await the ferryman. There is a quaint cottage nestled into the hillside with a farm and windmill in the distance. There are roses and flowers around the bottom. The detail is great and the scenes so pretty.

Measures: appx 6 1/2" x 1 3/4" deep
Marked: Swinnertons Staffordshire England "The Ferry" and incised with the following: Patent Lock Lid 358746
Condition: One bowl has a chip on the underside rim that doesn't show from the top/front and is still useable.  No other chips or cracks.
