EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE ABC PLATE

PLAYING WITH HOOPS

Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840

This is a wonderfully small 5 " child's transferware Alphabet plate , circa 1840. The plate is light weight and beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze.

It is transfer printed in red with darker piping to the interior well and rim. A pair of children in period dress are outside playing with sticks and their Hoop. The scene is naive and richly detailed.

The piece is unmarked. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district. Plates like this were made as gifts for good children and rewards of merit, used to aid in children's education and moral training, and to encourage their imaginations in the early to mid-19th century. The images were taken from copperplate engravings used in children's books of the same period.

Never Used and the condition of this ABC plate is EXCELLENT. Clean shiny and bright.

Children's early alphabet plates of this quality is quite scarce and highly sought after. The images are delightful, a throwback to a much simpler time. The plate will make a great addition to your collection of children's dishes.
