This plate is titled The JackDaw of Rheims. The motto on it is: And Off That Terrible Curse He Took. The Jackdaw of Rheims is one of the Ingoldsby Legends, a series of tales written by Richard Harris Barham in 1840. It concerns a cheeky Jackdaw who steals the Cardinal's ring but returns it when he suffers from a curse put on the thief. He then becomes so pious he is canonized on his death. This series was in production from 1905 to 1925 (D2532, D6378, E3305). There are 16 different scenes. This plate has great color and nice glaze. It has no cracks or chips. It does have a factory flaw on the rim with an extra little piece of earthenware. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
