Red Polychrome TRANSFERWARE Plate
Spode Copeland Duncan Rural Scenes
Grazing Cattle at an English Cottage Tudor Farmhouse
In 1849, W T Copeland commissioned artist Edward Duncan to paint a series of sepia water colors to inspire a selection of tableware. In the following year Copeland Spode registered the new Rural Scenes pattern. It was produced subsequently without a border design and was called Duncan Scenes. Around 1878 the production was limited and printed in brown on cream bodied eartherware in Amien embossed shape with Gadroon rims. The Copeland family retained a dinner set in this pattern. This plate is a wonderful example of the series but done in a red transfer with hand painted touches of green, gold and blue and with a fabulous Hops and vine border.
