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.
