The transfered image is of a young boy giving ride to his young sister in the wheelbarrow as a younger brother gaily runs along.
Condition is EXCELLENT. Clean shiny and bright. Normal stilt marks. 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.
