Early Staffordshire Child's Transferware Plate

CHRISTMAS DAY

Staffordshire England c. 1850

This rare child's transferware plate dates to c1850. This plate measures just 5" in diameter with a scalloped rim. It is transfer printed in black, with pearlware glaze and a press mouded flower border design. The central image is a naive depiction of a boy scarfing down his Christmas pudding which he is eating by candlelight. Great detailing, with a bib around his neck and his cheeks puffed out.

The maker is not known but the plate was made was most definitely made in the Staffordshire region of England in the early to mid 1800s. It is unmarked except for an impressed tally mark.

The plate is in great condition with a tight age line at 12 o'clock, visible only upon close examination. No other cracks chips or repairs. Glaze ponding original to the making. The naive image is delightful, a throwback to a much simpler time. It is amazing that this plate was made for a child so long ago! Offered as is.

Mugs and 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 19th century. A lovely addition to your ABC transferware collection and a great gift for Christmas!
