The scene is of cows and chickens, and includes bells, ribbons and floral background. It also has oval patural scenes both at the two bottom corners of the base of the breadbox and the top two corners of the lid to the breadbox. Most of the color is blue and white, but it also has some green, pink and yellow.
At the bottom of the breadbox is the word Liberty. Can you tell me approximately how old this piece might be and if it was rare to have transferware on a breadbox. Also, how common is the pattern and what value would you place on it. As I have scene transferware on many plates and vases, but not too many on breadboxes. I have been told that it is a piece from Arthur Lazenby Liberty, and it might be from the early 1900's. The piece has a minor chip at the bottom which is more noticeable on the underside.
Any information you can provide, would be greatly apprecited.
