“Oriental Fantasy Scene” Transferware Plate

$85.00Price

Transferware plate by Spode, circa 1810.

 

The pattern was originally listed in Spode’s pattern books as “Temple” but has come to be referred to as “Two Temples”.

 

Dimensions: Approximately 7¼” diameter.

 

Decoration:

The rim is decorated with a butterfly, diaper, and scroll pattern.

 

The center is decorated with a scene dominated by a Chinese temple complex, which may be one or two temples. There is a river with a bridge, an island, foliage, and figures.

 

This design has been copied for a Chinese export example, and the comparison is illustrated in “CHINOISERIE, Printed British Ceramics in the Chinese Style 1750 - 1900” by Halliday and Zeller at page 400.

 

The reverse bears a printed “Spode” mark used from 1800 – 1820.
