Spode Brown Transferware Saucer Plate Mother Boy Dog English Country Cottage
EARLY SPODE COPELAND BYRON
PASTORAL TRANSFERWARE CAKE PLATE / SAUCER
Stunning and unusual colors! Hard to find this Spode pattern in this colorway!
The idyllic scene is full of cottage charm and depicts a rural English farmhouse with either a passer by or perhaps a Mother giving her little boy a drink of water from a jug...with the family dog patiently waiting his turn! =) The border is a flowing blend of ivy growing on lattice. A beautiful color combination of gold, Robin's Egg blue, aubergine/burgundy which are hand painted within the confines of the brown transfer. The plate is trimmed with a hand painted reddish brown/burgundy enamel.

The pattern was registered first in 1851. (Spode Museum online)
Condition is very good having no chips, cracks, or repairs. There is some typical age related crazing and minor scuffs around the painted outside edge.
