Spode Copeland Brown Transferware Square Plate Farm Dog Roosters Chickens

$54.99

Brand Spode

From one of my all time favorite transferware patterns, I am offering this square shaped tray or plate from Spode Copeland.. The pattern is called Byron. Each piece in this series features a different pastoral scene. The scene depicts a woman standing outside her modest thatched cottage taling with a man on horseback, with chickens scurrying all about!  Commissioned by Copeland, much of the artwork on Spode Byron is by J C Horsley...Mr. Horsley also is credited with the design of the first ever commercially produced Christmas card!  The border is a brown transfer intertwined with bundles of grapes amongst lush ivy. The plate has a green rim and hand painted touches of pink, blue, gold, taupe and green.

The Byron pattern was registered first in 1851.  Hard to find the square plates and in the brown only colorway!

Condition is great. There is some wear to the green paint around the border.

Measures: approximately:  8.25" x 8.25"
