Peaceful Summer Clarice Cliff Brown English Transferware Plate Cascading Waterfall - Decorative Dishes

ROYAL STAFFORDSHIRE CERAMICS BURSLEM
PEACEFUL SUMMER PLATE
Hard to find!
This is one of my favorites depicts a stunning waterfall below a castle or perhaps Abbey ruins. There are some storks or cranes near the base of the waterfall. It is enveloped by lush gardens, trees and flowers which blend out from the scene with scrolled plumes and roses making the border.
Condition is great, no chips or cracks. There is some crazing, commensurate to age.
Marked as follows:
"Peaceful Summer" The celebrated designer F Cutts was born in the 18th Century. These scenes are reproduced (plate dates after 1891) from hand etched copper engravings of his original drawings by Royal Staffordshire Ceramics Burslem England Pattern covered by Glaze impervious to detergent
