Rare Early Rogers Child's Pearlware Name Plate ~ HANNAH
John Rogers Staffordshire England ~ c. 1820
This exceptional Staffordshire child's name plate measures 7 1/8" in diameter with a scalloped rim. It is transfer printed in Van Dyke brown with a press moulded floral border that is hand painted in enamel green red and blue, finished with pearlware glaze.
The name "HANNAH" is printed in a cartouche surrounded by hearts and flowers winding round a vine.
It is marked with an impressed ROGERS backstamp indicating it was made by John Rogers in the Staffordshire region of England c1800-1830.
The plate is in very nice condition, with no chips or cracks. There is a professional repair on the front rim at 9 0’clock, and a few repaired tiny chips along the back rim. Some wear to the painted rim. Glaze ponding original to the making. Wear to the inner rim which has modest discoloration. Fine utensil wear consistent with age and prior use. An outstanding example overall displaying beautifully.
Children's early name plates and mugs were given as christening gifts rewards of merit and gifts for good children. They are quite scarce and a wonderful gift to a special child today. The plate will make a fine addition to any collection of quality children's dishes. Offered as is.
