Brown Toile Transferware Plaque English Ironstone The Cottage of Content - Home Poem
Brand Royal Crownford
Here's an adorable little hanging plate / plaque inspired by the Victorian Garden and made by Royal Crownford. The plaque reads:
"As I was wandering o're the green,
not knowing where I went,
by chance I saw a pleasant scene,
The Cottage of Content"
It has a quaint cottage on a tree lined street.
It has a hole with braided cording for hanging and would be so pretty with a tied bow of lace or ribbon. (I have removed it because it was badly frayed and faded but took a pic so you can see where the hanging hole is). Very charming piece!
Lovely English Ironstone
Condition: Excellent. No chips or cracks but needs to be cleaned (you can probably see some smudge marks in the pic...they will clean away)
