Description:

An earthenware plate printed in red and teal green in the pattern assigned the name Festoon Series #1.   The border design of this pattern is the basis for the name of the pattern. It contains six reserves; three depict different suspension bridges and three depict garden scenes containing "follies" -- all of which are bordered on three sides by elaborate floral festoons, leading, logically, to the name Festoon Border. A large Gothic style building situated on an island is the main feature of the central pattern in this example.
