Staffordshire Two Color Green & Yellow Transferware Tab Handled Cookie Tray / Platter
George Jones and Sons
Great Britain / Made In England
Yellow transferware is the rarest of all colors and two color transfers are even rarer paired with yellow. This beautiful green and yellow transfer printed platter dates to about 1921-33 and was made by George Jones / Crescent Pottery. The platter features a gorgeous yellow transfer printed backdrop in a chintz or sheet pattern. Printed over the chintz, in brown, are beautiful blossoms and roses. It is painted by hand with shades of red, blue, and green. So very pretty and cheerful color combination! The handles and rim are beautifully embossed.
The company began operation in c.1864 at Stoke Upon Trent at the Trent Potteries Works as George Jones and in 1873 became George Jones & Sons Ltd. They produced gorgeous majolica and earthen wares.
In 1907 the works was renamed Crescent Potteries.
George Jones died in 1893.
Measures appx 12" x 9"
Condition: There is crazing present, commensurate to its age, light browning to mostly the back, as well as one small flake off the back rim which doesn't detract at all as it doesn't show from the front at all. I took a close up photo of this and have reduced the price of this very hard to find piece because of the imperfection. It is still a wonderful collectors piece!
