$0.00Price

Staffordshire transferware “Net” pattern meat platter, circa 1810.

 

Dimensions: Approximately 18¼” x 13⅞”.

 

Decoration:

The border has a floral and diaper pattern.

 

The center design gives the pattern its name "Net" because of the net background in the central medallion that contains a flower cross. This medallion is surrounded by four vignettes containing Chinese style landscapes, each different from the others and these, in turn, are set in a background of floral designs.

 

The reverse is unmarked.

 

A number of firms produced this pattern, including Spode, Herculaneum, Job Ridgway, and others.
