EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE ABC PLATE

YOUNG ARTIST

Staffordshire England ~ c. 1860

This is a 6 1/8 " child's transfer printed Alphabet plate , circa 1860. The plate is light weight and beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze.

It is transfer printed in blue with the alphabet along the rim. An image of a young artist with his palate and canvas painting the landscape.

The piece is unmarked. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district. 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 early to mid-19th century.

The condition of this ABC plate is very good Clean shiny and bright. A very feint hairline off the back rim.
