An antique child's raised ABC transferware plate with hand-colored hunt scene. The wonderful child's plate has a black transfer printed scene of horses, riders, and hounds racing across the English countryside in pursuit. In the background, church steeples, trees, and foliage add to the scene. Vivid shades of green, blue, pink, and yellow are hand-colored adding impact to this small but striking child's plate. Children's plates were often given as special gifts and used as educational tools.
