EARLY NURSERY TRANSFERWARE PLATE

THE LETTER " A "

Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840

This is a 6 1/2 " child's transferware plate , circa 1840. The plate is light weight and beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze.

It is transfer printed in dark black with gaily hand clobbering in bright green and cherry red.

The central transfer shows The letter " K ".

A is for APPLE - APE - AIR

It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district. Plates like this were used to aid in children's education and moral training, and to encourage their imaginations in the early to mid-19th century. The images were taken from copperplate engravings used in children's books of the same period.

Never Used. The condition of this ABC plate is excellent. No chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. Nicely potted and the transfers were applied with a good deal of attention to detail.
