Swinnertons "The Ferry" Purple English Transfer Ware Platter Scenic Ferry Roses Cottage


Brand Swinnerton's

Here is a pretty platter by Swinnerton's of England in a pattern called The Ferry. It is decorated in great detail with a small ferry boat on the river crossing from one side to another where three women await the ferryman. There is a quaint cottage nestled into the hillside with a farm and windmill in the distance. There are roses and flowers around the bottom. The detail is great and the scenes so pretty.
