Circa 1890s Antique Staffordshire Navy Blue Black Transferware Plate Rural Scenes Farm Cows Pigs George Jones

BLUE TRANSFER WARE PLATE
Here is one of my favorite patterns ever...Farm...produced in the mid 1800's and later as Rural Scenes or Pastoral Davenport by Royal Staffordshire. The scene 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 bard with hay in the back, closer to the house. The border is a unique and beautiful blend of scrolls, diamonds and grape leaves. There is some crazing which is commensurate to age...nothing signiificant. Truly beautiful!
