Child's Spongeware Stencil Miniature Toy Plate

BIRDS in FRUIT TREE

Creil-Montereau, France c.1910

This is a stunning toy spongeware plate, originally part of a complete miniature children's dinner service. The measures a diminutive 4" in diameter.

The center of the plate features a pair of love birds sitting in a fruit tree eating berries. The image is stenciled in cobalt blue and bright green under the glaze and the rim of the plate is decorated with golden yellow sponged paint.

The piece was made Montereau (formerly and subsequently Creil-Montereau), one of the faienceries in the France. The plate bears only an impressed mark that reads “1 L”.

The plate is in great condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. Light overall crazing consistent with age. This little plate was impeccably potted and the stencil was applied with a good deal of attention to detail.

Children's spongeware or spatter ware of this quality is quite scarce and highly sought after. The image of the birds and blueberries is simply delightful. The plate will make a great addition to your collection of children's dishes.
