Blue & White Transferware Platter Roses Cambridge Castle Picnic Pastoral Scene


Brand Johnson Bros

For consideration is this lovely, scalloped rectangular shaped  platter in the Old Britain Castles pattern made in Staffordshire England by Johnson Brothers.  This serving piece depicts a group of people having a picnic along the banks of the river at Cambridge Castle in 1792.  The grounds are lush, being landscaped with large trees, walkways and bridges as illustrated by H Fennell. The border is an intricate blend of Victorian scrollwork outlined by delicate & small geometric patterns w/ lush roses and other flowers placed intermittently around it.
