Description

English red transferware set of dishes dating from the early 19th century. While the two are matching pair: they are different in shape but their identical pattern, color, and style make them a wonderful set! Both have a red transfer print of a landscape scene on a tan earthenware background showing two travelers resting in a forest outside a village. The shaped dish has the mark of the Davenport Pottery manufactory on the back.

History

Davenport Pottery was a leading English earthenware and porcelain manufacturer based in Longport, Staffordshire, England. In 1785, John Davenport began as a potter working with Thomas Wolfe of Stoke. In 1794, he acquired his own pottery at Longport and began producing cream-colored blue-printed earthenware. By September 1806 the quality of his porcelain and pottery wares was such that the Prince of Wales, later to become King George IV, ordered services from Davenport.
