HUGE Antique Clobbered Brown Transferware Staffordshire Thanksgiving Turkey Platter Royal Cauldon 22"
Brand Royal Cauldon
This humongous platter is trimmed with gold and depicts a stunning wild turkey with a border of foliage around 1910. It is transfer printed in brown and hand painted with enamel in a profusion of color. It was made in 1910 by Royal Cauldon of England.
It's in good condition, having a visible hairline with which was repaired with several staples. There is a little wear to the golden trim, though not much, and only some crazing with faint darkening in craze lines.
Measures: 22" x 18" this baby will hold a 25+ pound bird...I know because I've served on one of these! (Also listing one a bit smaller at just under 20" wide)
See my blog posts to learn more about English Transferware. I was featured (and this platter to!) in the Nov 2011 issue of Romantic Homes magazine where I discussed turkey themed transferware:
I have seen this same Cauldon turkey platter sell on other websites and at auction for $849-1199.
