..AESTHETIC SET OF COPELAND PRIMROSE, 1881, WITH A BLACK TRANSFER AND SHADES OF BLUE, PINK, MAGENTA AND PALE OCHRE LUSTER.............. This set consists of 6 dinner plates (10” in diameter); a very large platter (18” length); a cake or serving plate with a tiny chip, approx. 9.5 diam; a shallow serving bowl; and a footed compote, 4.5” high and approx. 8.5. diam. I am willing to consider selling the plate set and other items separately. Condition is excellent with no chips, cracks, crazing, nor staining unless otherwise stated. The PRIMROSE pattern was first introduced by W. T. Copeland in 1881. The platter and plates feature a central star made up of small primrose blossoms as well as a border with tiny primroses. This Aesthetic Movement design has a black printed transfer of a stylized central exotic flower radiating in arches like a pinwheel star from the center and decorated with Acanthus leaves all around the edge. Indian/Oriental influenced design. Each petal is a hand painted panel made up of tiny flowers and leaves, all hand painted in shades of blue, pink, magenta and pale ochre luster. The design is reminiscent of a Gothic stained glass rose window. The markings include the registration diamond, W. T. COPELAND & SONS, as well as PRIMROSE, the pattern name.
