Staffordshire China Purple Chinoiserie Hand Painted Transferware Plate Ridgways Oriental

Ridgways Oriental

circa 1891

For consideration is this outstanding and rare polychromed purple transferware plate by Ridgways in the Oriental pattern. This is a very hard to locate piece and in a hard to find color, especially with the hand painted hues of gold, rusty red and green. An Eastern scene with mountains in the background is depicted on the face of the plate. The border is a gorgeous blend of fully bloomed roses.

Other pieces in this pattern are also listed.
