"Pagoda Park" Staffordshire Transferware Platter

$0.00Price

Transferware platter by unknown maker with reticulated border, circa 1820.

 

Dimensions: Approximately 10” x 7”.

 

Decoration:

The border is decorated with images of Chinese individuals and landscapes.

 

The central image is of pagodas and other oriental buildings; individuals, including one with a horse; a river; and background landscape.

 

The reverse bears a printed workman’s mark and contemporary letters in indelible ink.

 

The pattern is also called “Bear up a Pole” because of the column behind the pagodas on the right.

 

Although existing examples of this pattern are unmarked, a platter was reported with an impressed Wedgwood mark. It is possible that an unknown maker applied the transfer to a Wedgwood blank.

 

Condition: In excellent condition consistent with age and usage.
