RARE Royal Staffordshire Peaceful Summer Waterfall Blue Toile Transferware Tea N Toast Cup & Plate Set
Brand Royal Staffordshire
ROYAL STAFFORDSHIRE CERAMICS BURSLEM
VERY RARE LUNCHEON SET WATERFALL / PEACEFUL SUMMER PLATE
This is one of my favorites depictng 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.
The plate has an indentation where the cup rests. I have never come across these snack / luncheon sets in this pattern before. So pretty!
Condition is great, no chips or cracks. There is crazing, commensurate to age.
