Antique Aesthetic Blue, Pink, White, Brown Transfer Ware Plate T&r Boote:
Here is a very rare and lovely octagonal plate by the English porcelain firm of T + R Boote. I believe the pattern is called Summer Hill. The embossed maker's mark on the back is very hard to read, but I have verified that T + R Boote is the maker. I have NOT been able to find this particular pattern pictured anywhere, so I believe it to be rather unique. The colors are also unusual in a transfer ware: bright turquoise blue, pinky red (or reddish pink), brown, black, and gold band around the outside of the design. An artist has also hand painted little white dots on the various daisies and the calendula.The plate measures 6/12 inches across, and it really is quite impressive.Good luck!
