EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE PLATE

JUVENILE COMPANIONS ~ THE YOUNG SARGEANT

Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840

This is a 7 1/4 inch " child's transferware Alphabet plate , circa 1840. The plate is beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze. It is transfer printed in black with hand painting under the glaze in earthy tones.

The transfer shows a young lass with his charming young lady friend sparring with broom and toy sword. Their faithful hound stands at attention watching the scene unfold. Charming !

The piece is unmarked. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district. Plates like this were made as gifts for good children and rewards of merit, used to aid in children's education and moral training, and to encourage their imaginations in the early to mid-19th century.

Great condition.
