Vintage Purple English Transferware Serving Platter Tray Safe Harbour Ship - Nautical Decor


Brand Royal Staffordshire

I saw three ships go sailing by,
Over the sea, the lifting sea,

And the wind rose in the morning sky,
And one was rigged for a long journey.


Safe Harbour
Large Aubergine / Purple Transferware Platter

by Royal Staffordshire
Burslem England

from Royal Staffordshire Ceramics in the difficult to find pattern entitled Safe Harbour.
This piece has a purple transfer depicting a stunning ship / harbour scene inside the bowl and on each of the fours sides there are two different clipper ship scenes. Clipper ships fill the harbour and a town is in the background nestled in the hills and alongside the sea port. Beautiful shape!

Truly a wonderful find for your collection!
