Clarice Cliff Signed Royal Staffordshire Purple Transferware Lidded Tureen Rural Scenes England
Brand Royal Staffordshire
Purple Transferware Lidded Tureen
Clarice Cliff / Rural Scenes
Royal Staffordshire Pottery
Rare & Very Difficult to find!
For consideration I am offering this stunning purple transferware covered tureen / casserole in the rarely seen pattern 'Rural Scenes' by AJ Wilkinson/ Clarice CLiff Royal Staffordshire of Burslem England. This is one of the most beautiful scenic patterns ever produced on transferware. The scene depicts a Mother and child leaving their cottage and another woman working drawing water from the stream. There are a pair of chickens on the road between the thatched cottages.
The border is a stunning blend of farm tools, plows, rakes, and shovels intertwined with berries and ivy...also one of the most unique and beautiful borders!
Truly a wonderful find for your collection!
