Staffordshire transferware platter by Spode, c. 1820.
Dimensions: Approximately 14¾” x 11¼”.
The border is decorated in alternating panels of two women in oriental attire and stylistic fruit trees.
Between the panels are geometric designs with tassels.
The central scene is surrounded by a printed gadroon border. The scene is of a woman and child in oriental attire in an oriental landscape.
The reverse bears a printed “SPODE” mark, a printed workman’s mark, an impressed “Spode’, and an impressed “10”.
The pattern is also known as “Lanje Lijsen” or “Jumping Boy”.
