Vintage Red Transferware Oval Serving Bowl Cottage Hedging w/ Blackberry Border
Brand Barker Brothers
This is such a hard pattern to find depicting and titled "Old English Craft Making' by Royal Tudor Ware / Barker Bros. Each piece in the series depicts a different scene from hurdle making to horse ploughing. Here we see men hedging vines growing along a fence outside the cottage/ farm. In the distance is a hillside castle overlooking the pastoral farmlands below. It has an airy border of budding blackberries and leaves with an embossed rim. Very heavy ironstone serving platter.
