Victorian Butterflies ABC Plate ~ DOG w FAN 1890



J. Meir and Son Potteries

Staffordshire England 1890

This is a 8 1/4 " 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 and the central transfer is of a terrier dog with spectacles.

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 images were taken from copperplate engravings used in children's books of the same period.

The condition of this ABC plate is great.
