Rare Crescent Shape Antique Game Bird Staffordshire Quail Salad Plate Blue Transferware


Brand Powell & Bishop

This product is unavailable

Here is a very hard to find Crescent Shaped Wild Game Bird plate featuring a pair of Quail, possibly Grouse, in woodland grasses.  It is a  Salad or Dessert Plate in a Blue transfer.  I've never seen these larger crescent plates with pheasants or other game birds (I have a turkey one listed separately).
This lovely blue transferware plate was manufactured in Staffordshire England featuring a pair of woodland pheasants with a classic border of scrolls with dotted cartouches.  It has a pie crust rim.

Marked Athena Bisto England on back.  This same pattern was also produced by Powell & Bishop. 

The mark (Caduceus) was registered as a trade mark by Powell & Bishop in 1876, subsequently used by Bishop & Stonier.  The "Bisto" trade name was only used by Bishop and Stonier.

Plate measures appx. 9" x 5 1/2"

Condition shallow rim flake on lower right corner (this has been discounted by $22 due to the minor flaw)
