Circa 1902-07 Antique Royal Doulton English Transferware Turkey Platter
Turkey, Holly & Mistletoe
Absolutely stunning example of Royal Doulton's turkey wares depicting a hand painted wild turkey amongst mistletoe and holly, making this perfect to carry you through the Holiday season. The turkey at the center is a rich brown transfer which has been hand painted in a plethora of Autumnal colors, all underglaze and trimmed in a deep green in a pie crust, Gaston, rim. The first pic is of my identical platter hanging at home. By comparison to the other plates on the wall which are 9" (between a salad sized plate and dinner sized plate), you can see just how huge this is! I leave mine hanging up all year.
VERY hard to find this pattern!
Condition: No chips, no cracks, only a bit of crazing
