Large Aesthetic Brown / Polychrome Transferware Platter 1880s:
This is one of several listings that I have for English Aesthetic Movement transferware this week, and will continue to list many other pieces over the next several weeks / months.
Purchased in England and impressed with "K & Co.", this large platter could have been manufactured either by William Kirkby & Co. (1879-1885) or by Keeling & Co, with the mark dating its manufacture prior to 1891.
This large platter features brown transfer images of a young girl in a garden surrounded by oversized flowers with landscape vignettes balancing out the design. The transfers have been tinted with burnt orange and deep blue glazes and a beaded pattern around the rim finishes off the piece.
With the standard manufacturer's stilt marks, it measures approximately 15-1/2" x 12-1/2". There are a couple of tiny glaze pops and some glaze wear on the underside, otherwise it is in overall great condition with no chips, cracks or understand that shipping costs can be a bit daunting these days! Just so you know, I don't add to the shipping price what it costs me for any cartons and packing material to assure your piece(s) are well packed to arrive safely to you. I have added two shipping options for you to chose from (USPS Priority which is usually a 2-3 days arrival time to you after shipment and USPS Ground, which will take a longer amount of time to arrive but oftentimes costs less.)
I am very happy to combine pieces for significantly reduced shipping costs. If you are the winning buyer on multiple pieces, please wait to send payment until I have packed the pieces and sent an invoice.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
