EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC PLATE
ALBERT MEMORIAL LONDON
BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO ~ Staffordshire England ~ c. 1880
This fabulous 6 1/2" plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich chocolate brown with great color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of red and green. The image is part of the Famous Places series coveted by collectors. This is the only transferware plate with these places that I have seen.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a central cartouche of London's Westminster Abbey and the Albert Memorial Hall.
Great condition. Plates like these were given as gifts to children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well.
