EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC PLATE

THE SPONGE BATH ~ BOYS IN THE TUB

Staffordshire England c. 1860

This 6" soft paste plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich dark blue black. An entire transfer printed alphabet border encircles a Brownhills type decorative motif showing two playful boys wrestling in the tub at bath time.

Plates like these were given as gifts to good children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well.

The plate is in great condition, with no chips cracks or repairs. An underglaze rim chip on reverse side, original to the making. Overall glaze crazing consistent with age. Displays beautifully, clean and bright. A bit of glaze wear near the rim. Offered as is, a stunning example of Americana.

A lovely addition to your ABC collection.
