"Pride of the Village" Childrens English Plate C.1850
A 12 sided Child’s plate. This dish has a lovely theme, "The Pride of the Village". The added colors were done over a light gray transfer and before the final glaze. Each side of the 5 1/4 inches plate has general crazing which would have happened in the final glazing. (The kiln would have been too hot.) There is a very fine cobalt blue line that traces the plate's rim. This plate is in very good condition and displays beautifully. The makers mark is on the underside but remains too blurry for me to read.
