Vintage Lavender Transferware Plate & Bottle



A divine purple pair!

Perfect for the collector or someone who wants to start a collection - two pieces of purple right off the bat!

I adore transferware for the bucolic and fanciful scenes.  The colors are wonderful as well, purple being among the rarer ones to find.  The purple of this plate is a plum-y lavender.

This listing is for the plate, bottle & black wooden plate stand.

The plate measures 9.25" in diameter.  The outer edge is a bit scalloped. The scene is of travelers in a wood, setting up camp.

The bottle which has been "sun purpled" measures 7.5" including the cap.  The cap is metal, pewter in color. and an be removed. 

Have you heard the term sun purpled with reference to old glass bottles? 

Colorless glass which contains manganese dioxide as a decolorizer tends to turn different shades of purple when exposed to the rays of the sun or to other ultra-violet sources. Hence, the term "sun purpled".

This lavender English transferware plate is in pristine vintage condition with just the faintest patina in the bottom right of the center image.  ( see the 5th image ).

There is a small, faint rust spot inside the top of the bottle. I have no idea what was in the bottle, as when I found it there was no label & it was covered in the dust of the ages.  Cleaned up real nice!
