Vintage Brown Transferware Plate

Royal Staffordshire Pottery
Difficult to find!
For consideration I am offering this stunning polychrome brown transferware teapot in a fabulous pattern by Clarice Cliff of Royal Staffordshire. The pattern is 'Rural Scenes' by AJ Wilkinson/Royal Staffordshire of Burslem England and is difficult to find. This is one of the most beautiful scenic patterns ever produced on transferware. The brown transfer has hand painted touches of color in burgundy, olive green and golden taupe...all under glaze.
This piece depicts a charming farm scene with horses pulling carts and men atop huge piles of hay. The foreground encompasses a wooden fence and chickens/hens in the yard. The border is a stunning blend of berries intertwined amongst greenery and 4 insets of farming tools....very unique and different from most borders which consist of florals or geometric designs. The scene is depicted on each side of the teapot.
Appx 5 1/2" tall with lid on x 8" handle to spout, excellent condition with minimal age appropriate crazing only.
