Brown Transferware Dual Handled Vase Open Sugar Bowl Jar Rural Scenes Farm Bee Skep
Brand Royal Staffordshire
Multi colored Brown TRANSFER WARE VASE / OPEN SUGAR BOWL
Royal Staffordshire Clarice Cliff
Here is one of my favorite patterns ever...Rural Scenes or Pastoral Davenport by Royal Staffordshire.
This dual handled sugar bowl could easily double as a candy dish, small vase for flowers or for small trinkets or office supplies. It depicts a farm with cattle grazing in the yard, pigs in the foreground and a boy feeding chickens. There is a huge thatched English birdhouse to the left and a covered barn with hay in the back, closer to the house. The border is a stunning blend of berries intertwined amongst greenery and 4 insets of farming tools....very unique and different from most borders which consist of florals or geometric designs. Hand painted touches of red, green and gold highlight the scene. This is one of the most beautiful scenes on transferware ever!
