Rare Transfer Printed Childs

DR SYNTAX PLAYING GARDEN MUSIC

SWANSEA England c 1820

This is a stunning transferware childs plate measuring 5 5/8" in diameter. The color is a rich cobalt blue with a pearlware glaze. The plate is impeccably potted and light bodied.

Decorated with a whimsical image of a trio of comical musicians – violin viola and cello or string base -- playing chamber music in the garden. The rim is decorated with moulded animals and decorative sprigs alternating with dogs a cat and monkey. According to a member of the Transferware Collectors Club, this is from a series pattern called Doctor Syntax. The busy and imaginative decoration is very rich, with little white space. There is no maker's mark. It was made by, Bevans & Irwin in Swansea, Wales c1820.

The plate is in fairly good condition with a shallow chip on the edge at 7 o’clock, a small chip on the back and no other chips, cracks, or repairs. Stilt marks, normal glaze crazing, and a dot of kiln fleck, and other minor typical manufacturing imperfections original to the making, a sign of authentic early Victorian era industry. Inner rim wear consistent with prior use. A very desirable pattern, perfect for friends of animals and musicians, and advanced collectors of unusual doll dishes.
