Black Transferware Alphabet ABC Plate ~ HORSE 1890



W. Adams and Sons

Tunstall, Staffordshire England


This is a 7 3/8 " child's transferware Alphabet plate. The plate is light weight and beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze.

It is transfer printed in black with the entire alphabet gracing the perimeter, complete with twining vines and a red band around the outside. The central transfer is of a Japanesque Fan surrounding a wonderful horse wrapped in wild grasses and flowers. A butterfly flits overhead and horseshoes hide among the foliage.

Plates like this were made as gifts for good children and rewards of merit, used to aid in children's education and moral training, and to encourage their imaginations.

The condition of this ABC plate is excellent, shiny and bright.
