Childs Spongeware Stencil Miniature Toy Plate

HUNGRY BUNNY RABBIT

Creil-Montereau, France c.1900

This is a stunning toy spongeware plate, originally part of a complete miniature children's dinner service. The measures a diminutive 4 inches in diameter.

The center of the plate features a bunny rabbit holding a fork in preparation for dinner munching. The image is stenciled in bright yellow-orange with black detailing, and the rim of the plate is decorated with black sponged paint.

The pattern name is "Rabbits and Carrots", (de Lapins et de Carottes in French).

The piece was made Montereau (formerly and subsequently Creil-Montereau), one of the faienceries in the France. The plate bears only an A1 impressed mark.

The plate is in great condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. Light overall crazing consistent with age. This little plate was impeccably potted and the stencil was applied with a good deal of attention to detail.

Children's spongeware or spatter ware of this quality is quite scarce and highly sought after. The image of the rabbit is simply delightful. The plate will make a great addition to your collection of children's dishes.We have also listed companion plates showing two bunnies to mix and match. Sold as is.
