A fine pottery dark blue and white Staffordshire platter, transfer printed in the "Birds and Fruit" pattern. Unmarked except for an impressed "12" on the reverse, but attributed to John Hall & Sons, Burslem, England.

The central scene features two birds amidst a panoply of fruit, including pears, strawberries, blackberries, grapes, etc. The cavetto and wide rim has a border of flowers and foliage.

The color of this platter is a deep, clear blue, with no blurriness, and with the desired ripple glaze. Condition is excellent, with no cracks, restoration, or staining. Scratching, if any, is minimal and not really visible. At one place at the side of the rim, there is a tiny flake of glaze loss. The back has typical glaze crackling. The size is 12 1/2 " by 9 7/8".

A truly wonderful example of this highly collected pattern.
