WOOD & SONS - English Scenery

One of Woods most popular lines, a classic BLUE & WHITE pattern in which the central landscape designs differ from plate to plate (cf: Booths BRITISH SCENERY). The designs were engraved from around 180 drawings by the C19th master potter ENOCH WOODS.

NB: Early 19thC plates from the pre-Wood & Sons period are now rare and command very high prices. They have a completely different backstamp to the ones shown below, often featuring an eagle.

When FREDERICK RHEAD became art director of Wood & Sons in 1912, he was given the task of re-drawing many of the scenes and also re-designed the floral border. Over a period of time, the copper plates from which the transfers were taken would have to be re-engraved also, accounting for wide variations even within the same scene.

ENGLISH SCENERY was also produced in other colours, such as red, purple and green, and there is a hand-coloured version over a brown transfer. All the examples below are in the blue transfer, which itself can be found in several different shades.

NB: Apologies for the differing shades of blue in the photos - some have a colour cast
caused by the lighting conditions. In reality, all items are a similar blue colour.
