Early Colorful Pearlware Childs Plate

MY BROTHER

Staffordshire, England c. 1820

Dating to the early 19th century, this childs plate measures 7 inches in diameter with a moulded rim. Transfer printed in dark red and decorated with a pastel color range, enamel green blue red and yellow. The plate is surrounded with a flower moulded border of the plate and finished with pearlware glaze.

The center of the plate contains an illustrated poem, originally printed in copperplate engravings from a child's primer used to instruct children on the joys of family with poems from sisters Ann and Jane Taylor. The endearing image depicts a little girl being pulled in a horse wagon driven by her patient big brother. The verse reads:

"What pleasure filled by little Heart, When seated in my wooden cart, To see thee act the Horse’s part, MY BROTHER."

The plate is unmarked and unsigned. It is most likely from Staffordshire or one of the northern potting regions of England c. 1800-1820. The plate is in great condition with no chips cracks or repairs. Light wear along the rim. Beautifully potted.
