Historical Staffordshire Plate ~ Hollywell Cottage~ Riley Dark Blue Transferware:
English Staffordshire Pearlware Dark Blue Transferware Plate c1820
~ Hollywell Cottage Cavan ~ Large Scroll Border Series ~ John & Richard Riley ~
10 1/4" in diameter
An English Staffordshire pearlware plate by the Riley factory (1802-1828) from their 'large scroll border' series which had 27 different English views. This one is 'Hollywell Cottage, Cavan' a view from a river where three men are fishing from a boat. There is a church steeple and mountain in the distance, the cottage sits in a very lush landscape.
In good to fair condition; there are two very tiny chips out of the border (see pics below) it has a very glossy border but rather worn face, this one with quite a few scratches, however, still looks quite lovely on display. The back is very good, crazing to the heavy pearlware glaze and rather prominent 3 sets of stilt marks but nice mark and no damage.
for looking, !
