EARLY CHILD'S BROWN TRANSFERWARE PLATE

FROLICS OF YOUTH ~ THE YOUNG ARTIST

Staffordshire, England ~ c. 1830

This is an early child's transferware plate made of a soft paste earthenware. The plate measures 7 1/8" in diameter. It is crisply transfer printed in black with the blue puddling of pearlware glaze.

The rim's border is impressed with exotic flowers and leaves. Hand clobbered in shades of red, green and blue.

The central image transfer is crisp and well defined showing a young artist showing off his master work of fresh art to his young companions. The plate is part of the Early Days series, which are discussed at length and illustrated in Gifts for Good Children Part I written by Noel Riley and published by Richard Dennis.

The plate is unmarked and made in the Staffordshire region of England.
Plates like these were given as gifts for good children, for a special occasion or rewards of merit, and were also used to aid in the education of young children.

The plate is in good condition with two hard to see stable hairline cracks, right out of my collection.
