Vintage Spode Copeland Brown Transferware Tea Cup and Saucer Plate Mother Boy Dog
Brand Copeland Spode
Circa 1927-50 Tea Cup & Saucer
Another piece from Spode's Byron pattern is this lovely teacup and saucer.
The pattern was first registered with the British registry of designs in 1851. The border is a brown transfer intertwined with bundles of grapes amongst lush ivy. The scene depicts a rural English farmhouse with either a passer by or perhaps a Mothers child being given a drink of water from a jug...The cup details an English cottage on the outside and has a small transfer inside.
The detail in this piece is exquisite and has been painstakingly hand painted in large part with hues of gold, green, blue and red/pink. It has a painted green trim.

Condition is very good having no chips, cracks, or reapirs. There is some typical age related crazing and some wear to the green trim
