EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC PLATE
BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO
Staffordshire England ~ 1880
This large 7 1/4 " alphabet plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich dark bittersweet chocolate brown with great color polychrome hand painting in green. In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative clover transfer, this plate has a central cartouche of an Elephant wandering the Plains. Such a sweet image.
Condition is very good with no damage other than a short tight hairline to the back rim.. Clean and bright. The image is part of the Wild Animals series coveted by collectors. This transfer, rarely seen on the market, will be a special abc plate in your collection.
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.
