Spode Byron Brown Transferware Cake Platter Mother Boy Dog Octagon Shaped No 2


Brand Spode Copeland




From one of my all time favorite transferware patterns, I am offering this wonderful quartered/sectioned plate from one of Englands finest potters...Spode. The pattern is called Byron. Each piece in this series features a different pastoral scene...based loosely on the poetry of Byron himself.

This particular plate was offered by the firm of Angus Watson, proprietors of Skipper Sardines and used in conjunction with a sales promotion based on the purchase of a premium gift. The pattern was first registered first in 1851 and was most likely named after the poet Lord Byron due to the Romantic nature of the artwork on the various pieces.

The border is a brown transfer intertwined with bundles of grapes amongst lush ivy. The scene depicts a rural English farmhouse with either a passer by or perhaps a Mothers child being given a drink of water from a jug...

The detail in this piece is exquisite and had been painstakingly hand painted in large part with hues of gold, brown, green, blue and red.

Condition is very good having no chips, cracks, or reapirs. There is some typical age related crazing.

Measures: approximately: . 9.5 - 9.75” x 9.5 – 9.75” Please note that on the picture of the stamp above I used one I already had...the stamp on this plate is the same but also says 'Series No 2' dsirectly beneath Spode's Byron
