Originally painted by The Royal Academy Artist, Francis Wheatley, in the 1790s, The Cries of London are brilliant portraits of history. Offered here are two 8.5 inch diameter hexagonal transferware plates by Adams of England. Both have a beautifully detailed border. The subjects are "New Mackeral" painted by F. Wheatley, engraved by N. Schiavonetti Jun and "Old Chairs to Mend" by F. Wheatley, engraved by Vendra Min. The transfer for "Old Chairs to Mend" fills more area of the original porcelain blank than the other. The New Mackeral plate has overall crazing. Both are in very good to excellent condition and would be handsome additions to any collection of English transferware.
