VERY EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE PLATE
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840
This antique English 7 " plate has a beautifully applied crisp image transfer printed in rich black with a pearlware glaze. The rim and inner well is striped in green and the plate is further enhanced by under the glaze hand painting in an array of vivid enamel colors. A fantastic color combination.
An impressed border of alternating pinwheel daisies complement the rich transfer that shows a Gipsy Girl tending to her newborn in a hammock. Other Gipsies sit at a campfire nearby. Charming Victorian scene.
EXCELLENT CONDITION. Clean shiny and bright.
