Royal Doulton Black Transferware Cream Ware Scenic Plate Charger Wading Swans RARE Embossed Scrolled Border
Brand Royal Doulton
From Royal Doulton is this absolutely gorgeous black transferware creamware charger depicting a European villa appearing to almost float on a lake, surrounded by lush trees, floral vegetation and a pair of swans wading in the foreground. The border of the platter / plate is one of the most beautiful I've seen and makes the entire piece just come alive. It is embossed with a scrolled and floral band directly around the scene and then an outer border of with raised lines and more scrolls and flowers.
This plate makes a perfect charger to layer under dinner or salad plates as shown in the last photo. Would also be beautiful just to display or serve cookies from.
