English ABC Plate ~ Little Jack Horner 1880

EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC PLATE

LITTLE JACK HORNER

BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO

Staffordshire England

c. 1880

This 7 1/4 " plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich chocolate brown with great polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of cinnamon brown, red, blue and golden yellow. A blue bow tie completes the coloration.

This lovely plate is transfer printed with the entire alphabet surrounding a cartouche of Little Jack Horner sitting in his corner, subject of a famous nursery rhyme. This series is coveted by collectors of early antique ABC wares and is one of the best produced by Brownhills.

Excellent condition. Normal stilt marks to the front and 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.
