Extra HUGE Antique Brown Transferware Staffordshire Platter Cottage on Lake
Brand Royal Cauldon
This stunning platter is from my personal collection. Not only would it be stunning to serve your Thanksgiving Turkey with all the trimmings from but it would be a beautiful display piece or make a perfect top for a side table. I have not come across this pattern or shape of platter before. it reminds me of the Swiss Scenery pattern a little. It depicts a Victorian lakeside cottage and is done in a very dark brown transfer.
It's in wonderful condition. There are no chips or cracks on this 100+ year old beauty. There is one rough nick on the back and signs of age, including crazing. It is marked merely with an impressed 20.
Measures: appx 21" x 17” this baby will hold a 25+ pound bird...I know because I've served on one of these!
