EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC PLATE
BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO ~ Staffordshire England c. 1880
This 7 1/8" plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich dark chocolate brown with great three color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of cherry red, golden yellow and cobalt blue.
The image is part of the Nursery Tales series coveted by collectors. Fabulous piece from the aesthetic movement era. In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a cartouche of Cinderella sitting by the kitchen hearth dreamily in thought of Prince Charming. Outstanding transfer !
A great example and in great condition. No chips, cracks or repairs. Plates like these were given as gifts to children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well. A lovely addition to your ABC collection. Please email me if you need further information.
