Adams & Bromley Majolica Begonia Dish circa 1875
Diam: 30cm (12 inches)
The oval brown ground tray with large brightly coloured geraniums, all within an amber border.
Adams & Bromley majolica is excellent quality. They produced a wide range of Majolica with titles such as 'Pineapple', 'Water Lily', 'Apple & Pears' and 'Corn'.
Their modelling is crisp and glazes very bright. When Adams & Bromley majolica pieces are grouped together, they form a very cohesive and decorative collection.
Adams & Bromley Majolica plates look especially good displayed together.
