Staffordshire Double ABC Plate ~ Bears Swimming 1880



Staffordshire England c. 1880

This 7 3/8" plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich red. In addition to the entire ABC alphabet impressed along the perimeter of the plate, there is the entire alphabet transfered along the edge of the well of the plate. The whimsical scene of a young lass calling out to his five bear friends as they dive into the water. Delightful imagination !

Condition is very good, clean and bright with no chips, no cracks and no repairs. Three minor hairlines to the rear. Plates like these were given as gifts to children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well. A lovely addition to your ABC collection.
