For consideration is this very rare, green and yellow transfer ware plate by (Royal) Doulton of Burslem, England. The plate reveals a stunning depiction of three cows / cattle surrounded by an elaborate border of cartouches inset with medallion designs. Very unusual to find in this colorway.
This charger pre-dates the "Royal" warrant as it was in 1901 the factory was honoured by the presentation of the Royal Warrant to its Chairman, and the Doulton Potteries received the right to use the word " Royal " in the description of their manufactures. The Burslem factory has been favoured by many Royal visits, the most recent being when Princess Elizabeth (H.M. Queen Elizabeth II) spent an hour and a half in the plant on November 2nd, 1949.
