Rare Miniature Historical Childs Dinner Set Platter

QUEEN OF SHEBA

Staffordshire England c1830

This is a very scarce dark blue historical toy meat plate or platter c 1830 originally part of the complete dollhouse miniature dinner service. The tiny oval platter measures 4 inches long with a hand cut scalloped rim and flat bottom, impeccably potted and finely transfer printed with pearlware glaze.

According to Coysh and Henrywood, this tiny piece of Chinoiserie has elements of gothic and classical design, depictiing a Queen escorted by a slaves holding a parasol and children holding her train. Doris Lechler, in her book ‘English Toy China’, attributes the pattern to Spode. According to the Transferware Collectors Club and others, it would have been made by Minton. Possibly both factories used the same pattern, dating to 1820-1830. Like all known pieces in this pattern, this diminutive plate is unmarked except for a tally mark. The quality of the form and detailing of the image is far superior to what would be expected on this diminutive sized piece.

The platter is in great condition, with no cracks, chips, or repairs. Minor firing imperfections on back side only -- glaze pops, stilt marks, ponding -- original to the making. A nice example of an extremely rare miniature transferware pattern, offered as is.
