Spode Byron Brown Transferware Plate Girls Gathering Wheat RARE COLOR Robins Egg Blue Burgundy and Gold


Brand Spode

This product is unavailable



Here is one of my favorite transferware designs ever produced on Staffordshire pottery. This is an early plate by famed English potter Spode in the difficult to find pattern entitled Byron. It depicts two young girls and their Mother gathering wheat. One of the girls sits atop a fence as her dog looks on curiously. There are many difference scenes in this series, each depicting rural English life. The detail in this piece is exquisite and has been painstakingly hand painted in large part with hues of gold, Robin's egg blue and rust. It has a painted burgundy trim. I very, very rarely come across Byron pieces in this color way. It is stunning!

See more of this pattern in my shop and at my blog, where you can learn more about it and English transferware:

The pattern was registered first in 1851. (Spode Museum online)

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