Poole Pottery Transfer Plate, Barbara Furstenhofer, Sleeping Beauty (149)
This transfer plate depicting Sleeping Beauty is one of a series of Poole Pottery transfer plates that were based on paintings by Barbara Furstenhofer of children's nursery story characters.The rich colours and imaginative designs have made this a very collectable series of plates. This plate is in excellent condition and has a diameter of approximately six inches. The reverse of this plate is clearly marked with the Poole Pottery logo and also marked "149 Sleeping Beauty".
Poole Pottery produced most of its transfer plates from open stock patterns in the 1980's and 1990's. Poole do not seem to have kept a comprehensive list of the patterns that they produced, so the many collectors of these transfer plates are constantly on the lookout for additional plates to add to their collections. Prices are now rising steadily, so make sure that you add to your collection before new aquisitions become too expensive.
