Rural Scenes

Here is one of my favorite patterns ever...Rural Scenes or Pastoral Davenport by Royal Staffordshire. This is one of the larger and more difficult to find patterns. The scene depicts a farm with cattle grazing in the yard, pigs in the foreground and a boy feeding chickens. There is a huge thatched English birdhouse to the left and a covered bard with hay in the back, closer to the house. The border is a unique and beautiful blend of farm implements such as a hoe, shovel, bees keep and sheaths of wheat arranged between bundles of berries and ivy. It's absolutely beautiful!

Measures: 14" x 10"
