Vintage Spode Byron Brown Transferware Plate Farm Dog Chickens Trellis Vine Grapes


Brand Copeland Spode

From one of my all time favorite transferware patterns, I am offering this wonderful plate from one of Englands finest potters...Spode. The pattern is called Byron. Each piece in this series features a different pastoral scene...based loosely on the poetry of Byron himself. Equally interesting, is that this pattern was never (to my knowledge) introduced into the United States...so even if you do come across it, most likely pieces are located in England.

The pattern was registered first in 1851.

The border is a brown transfer intertwined with bundles of grapes amongst lush ivy. The scene depicts two women visiting, one has a her arms filled with baskets of live chickens.

The detail in this piece is exquisite and had been painstakingly hand painted in large part with hues of gold, brown, green, blue and red.
