Antique English Platter Transferware
A generously-sized vintage Royal Ridgways Stoke-on-Trent serving platter made in Staffordshire, England by Bedford Works. Circa estimated between 1891 and 1912. Its elegantly-sculpted rectangular shape is ideal for serving or simply to admire on your countertop or dining table. Its classic English style blends effortlessly into any decor and color palette.
A vibrant and rich chocolate brown transferware pattern characterizes this piece. The gold edge detail has worn off in a few places, a nod to the piece’s history and authenticity. The white ground has a subtle luster and luminosity that is simply not replicated in dinnerware produced today.
We love how this timeless piece complements our Grey Gardens melamine collection. A simply beautiful element to mix into any tablescape, in any season.
Ridgways Royal Semi Porcelain Burlington. Bottom is both numbered, marked and stamped as shown in last few photos. The bow and quiver trademark seen on this piece was first registered in 1880. Pieces with the word Ridgways in the plural form (as evidenced here) were produced between 1870 and 1921. Since the word England is also included in the trademark symbol here, this piece was known to be produced after 1891. A stunning addition to your special collection.
Piece measures approximately 18” x 13.3"
