CRUSOE RESCUES FRIDAY
BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1880
This large 7 1/4 " plate has a crisp image transfer printed in dark rich chocolate brown with great color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of green, golden yellow, and cobalt blue. The plate has the blue ponding of a pearlware glaze.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a central cartouche of Robinson Crusoe as he rescues Friday.
Very good condition with no chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. 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.
