Rare early 19th Century Creamware Childs Plate
SWIMMING DUCK
Staffordshire England

This is a very scarce miniature childs or child size creamware plate. It measures approximately 5 1/2" in diameter with a turned bottom. Decorated with early transfer printing or bat print in a rich earthy sepia brown, illustrating a swimming duck...beautifully executed showing the precision of the early natural history copperplate engravings. Possibly a Wood Duck. Finished with a press molded rim painted with early pink lustre and pearlware glaze.

The simple creamware plate is elegantly understated. It was made in the early 19th century by an unknown maker. Marked I. Wedgwood and Clews quality, probably hails from Staffordshire or possibly the northern potteries.

The plate is in very good condition, with 2 glaze nibbles at 4 o'clock, wear along the rim and no chips cracks or repairs. Light wear consistent with age and prior use. An exquisite little plate for any creamware pearlware or miniature children and animals collection. Offered as is.
