1840 Staffordshire Child's Toy Transferware Plate
A sweet child’s toy plate from England. This plate is 3 3/8 inches in diameter and has a slightly rococo edge. The plate would have been a ‘Gift for Good Children’ and shows three young boy playing. The center color of this scene is of a teal green, the outside hand painted rim in a magenta red. This small plate also has a wonderful pearl ware glaze. The condition is very good with only the light crazing that would have happened during the final glazing in the kiln. There are no chips or nicks to this charming Staffordshire 1840 child’s toy plate.
