Set of 5 Antique Brown Transferware Plates - J. H. W. & Sons - Woodland - England - c. Late 1800s
Lovely set of 5 antique brown English transferware plates.
These were manufactured by J. H. Weatherby & Sons of Hanley, England. The pattern is called "Woodland" and the makers mark indicates they were made in the late 1800s.
The makers mark reads as follows.
J.H. W. & Sons
Rd No 2112 54
They each measure 8" in diameter.
The plates are in very good condition for the age. No cracks or crazing. One plate does have a shallow 3/16" chip under the rim, but it is barely noticeable. There are the characteristic utensil marks from use, as well as some glaze bubbles and under under-glaze peppering from the manufacturing process.
