This gorgeous, ornately detailed plate depicts the hillside of the ancient city of Genoa (Italian for Genova), Italy. Today the port of Genoa is currently the biggest Italian port regarding both passenger and cargo, and one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean Sea. The beautiful scene looks like a classic Italian garden and is surrounded by an intricate lace, scroll and vine inner border of  cartouches filled with birds and flowers.  The brown transfer has hand painted colors of green, gold, blue and brown. Absolutely gorgeous detail!

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.
