ABBEY - Livesley Powell

The ABBEY pattern is one of those patterns that has endured the test of time and been used by several companies along the way. George Jones used it for many years and it has its collectors just like the Willow pattern. This 10 sided plate (decahedron) by the firm of Livesley Powell & Co (L.P&Co) is printed in a puce/pink transfer on an Ironstone body and dates from the mid 19th century.
Powell Bishop & Stonier continued to use the Abbey transfer print design and produced this lovely hexagonal platter in a blue & white colourway.

About Me

My photo
Sometimes, life doesn't turn out the way you expected. And sometimes, it is exactly as it was 'meant' to be. But whilst i'm not a believer in fate or fatalism, I do believe that life is a both a learning experience and an obstacle course to be climbed and clambered over in the most creative way possible! In doing so, you'll get to where you should be even if it's not where you'd imagined.
