“Florals for Spring… Groundbreaking.” – Miranda Priestly.

“Florals for Spring… Groundbreaking.” – Miranda Priestly.This lovely printed and painted floral design was identified as “993” by John & William Ridgway. The pottery was in business from 1813 to1830 in Shelton, Hanley, Staffordshire, England. Many potteries offered patterns with colors applied over the printed design. It was more labor-intensive than simply transfer printing a piece, but still less labor than a fully hand-painted piece. Sometimes patterns were offered with and without the added colors at different price points.

This is pattern 19100 in the TCC Database of Patterns and Sources.
