Early Red Pearlware ABC Plate ~ ELEPHANT 1840



Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840

This is a 7 1/4 " child's transferware Alphabet plate , circa 1840. The plate is light weight and beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze.

It is transfer printed in red with the alphabet impressed along the rim. An image of a wild Elephant is transfer printed in the center of the great plate.

The piece is unmarked. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district. 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 in the early to mid-19th century.

The condition of this ABC plate is Excellent, Never Used Clean shiny and bright. A touch of very light edge roughness. Nicely potted and the transfers were applied with a good deal of attention to detail.
