Exceptional Antique English Staffordshire B & W Transfer-ware Very Large Platter
Extraordinarily fine and impressively Large Antique English Blue & White Scenic Transferware Ironstone Platter with unidentifiable “period” impressed makers mark (after exhaustive research in Godden’s and Miller’s books on transferware and ironstone/earthenware). This pattern is illustrated in Miller’s Encyclopedia of British Transfer-Printed Pottery Patterns, pg. 57 and is known as “Nuneham House – Oxforshire” and part of the “Rose Border Series”.
There is a “suspicious” area about two inches long x 1/4 inch high on the top edge where an very old top edge restoration “may” have taken place years ago. It also could be where the transfer pattern crudely overlapped, but it is mentioned for accuracy and priced accordingly.
This is a lovely, very large size platter.
