    Brown Transferware Cream Soup Plate with Hand Colored Painting


    Edge Malkin & Co

    Staffordshire England  1883

    This is a fantastic plate measuring a large 9 3/4 inches in diameter.  The  plate is decorated in the TONQUIN pattern, featuring an assymetrical composition that reflects the wonderful imagination of the Aesthetic Movement -- arching palms and lush vegetation, a Heron and many other tropical birds, with an inset circular cartouche of a tropical bird perched at sunrise. The intricate border on the lower half includes another Heron along with geometric whimsies.  Highlighted by a master artist in a lovely palette of colors.

    The piece was made by Edge Malkin & Co., a pottery in the Staffordshire district in England. The kite shaped registration mark dates the piece to 1883. 

    Never used.  The plate is in great condition.

    19th Century, Victorian (1837 to 1901)
