RARE Large Charles Meigh Tab Handled Brown Transferware Platter Jenny Lind w/ hand painted highlights of red gold and green
RARE & Hard to find!
Brown Polychrome Transferware Tab Handled Platter
Royal Staffordshire - Charles Meigh & Sons
For consideration I am offering this stunning brown transferware tab handled platter in the pattern 'Jenny Lind' by Charles Meigh & Sons / Royal Staffordshire of Burslem England. This is one of the most beautiful scenic patterns ever produced on transferware. The scene depicts a group of people in an Alpine setting all dressed in period clothing seen viewing the distant castle through a telescope. This piece was originally made to go underneath the large soup tureen (sold separately) but can be used and displayed just as is.
The brown transfer has been hand painted with highlights in red, green, blue and gold/taupe.
Truly a wonderful and rare find for your collection!
C M & S is Charles Meigh and Son. In 1835 Charles Meigh became the successor to his father Job Meigh, also a prominent Staffordshire potter. He manufactured earthenware at the Old Hall Pottery in Hanley and traded under the name or initials Charles Meigh & Son or C M & S from 1851-1861. This pattern was also produced later by Royal Staffordshire / A J Wilkinson up until the 1940's.
Condition: There is minor crazing. No chips, no cracks or stains. Lovely!!!
Johanna Maria Lind better known as Jenny Lind, was a Swedish-born opera singer, often known as the "Swedish Nightingale". She is known for her performances in soprano roles in Sweden and Europe, as well as for an extraordinarily popular tour of America beginning in 1850 promoted by P T Bailey (Barnum & bailey), and for her philanthropic work. Her fame garnered many commemorative items of which many still are produced and named after her today.
I am listing lots of transferware and Staffordshire items. Please take a look as I am happy to combine shipments.
