BLUE ALPHABET ABC PLATE
YOUNG MINSTRELS ~ MUSICIANS
c. 1890 ~ Staffordshire England
This great 6 1/8" alphabet plate has a crisp image transfer printed in dark marine blue.
The plate features the entire alphabet, connected by a row of flowers, around the rim. The central red transfer is of two young lasses out of doors in their period dress playing their Lutes. Just charming.
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.
The condition is very good, no chips, cracks or repairs. Normal stilt marks to the front and a very tight hairline off the rim. Please email me with any questions or if you would like to see additional photos.
