Circa 1857 - 80 Spode Copeland Light Gray ish Black Transferware Plate Lace Border Cottage Richmond Views


Brand Spode Copeland

Here is an antique light black / gray transferware plate by Spode / Copelandin the Richmond Views pattern  The scene depicts a beautiful cottage (I think this looks like, and may be, Willy Lots cottage at Flatford Mill). Charming nonetheless. My favorite thing about this piece is the border which is a beautiful blend of lacey scrolls and flowers.
