EARLY ALPHABET ABC PLATE
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840
This delightful 5 1/4" plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich red and then hand painting along the rim of the bowl and edge in a bright blue stripe.
The plate features a sawtooth rim with the entire alphabet surrounding the perimeter of the plate. The central transfer is of a Zebra standing with the African landscape in the background.
Condition of this plate is excellent, with normal stilt marks. This plate is quite rare and especially in this exceptional condition.
