Staffordshire Transfer Ware Plate

George Jones and Sons


Circa 1887

This gorgeous bone dish is by George Jones in the Primrose Pattern. It dates to the Aesthetic Movement which you can read about here:

This dish is a dark brown transfer that has been hand painted in teal, green, rose, sienna brown and gold. The dish is heavily scalloped and trimmed with gold.
Absolutely gorgeous detail!

I will be listing two other bone dishes from this pattern (each with a different floral design), plates and two footed compotes.

The company began operation in c.1864 at Stoke Upon Trent at the Trent Potteries Works as George Jones and in 1873 became George Jones & Sons Ltd. They produced gorgeous majolica and earthen wares.
In 1907 the works was renamed Crescent Potteries.
George Jones died in 1893.

I have more than one of these plates available and will list more if you need more than one. thank you!
