BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO Staffordshire England c. 1880
This 7 1/8” plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich chocolate brown with great four color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of cinnamon brown, golden yellow, red and cobalt blue.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a central cartouche of Little Red Riding Hood leaving her Mother’s house on the way to Grandmother’s house.
Good antique condition. There is a chip along the edge under the glaze and was made during the making of the plate. A rarely seen transfer plate.
