EARLY SPODE COPELAND BROWN AESTHETIC TRANSFER WARE TURKEY SIZED PLATTER

CAIRO

This is a wonderful, circa 1852-1882 Copeland medium sized oval platter with an Aesthetic transferware design in brown.


The underside of this 130+ year old platter is incised "Copeland" over a crown, a mark that dates from 1850-1885 it is also impressed with the letter U over 83and an additional number which I believe is a 1

The W.T. Copeland factory was located in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England, during this time period.

This platter is in good condition with no crazing, chips or cracks.

The brown transferware sets simply and beautifully against the creamy white ironstone body.

Measures: Big enough for your Thanksgiving turkey19" x 15"
