Early Pearlware Childs Plate

MY GRANDFATHER ~ LEARNING TO TELL TIME

Rogers ~ Staffordshire, England c 1825

Dating to the early to early 19th century, this childs plate measures 6-3/4 inches in diameter with a finely moulded acanthus leaf rim. Transfer printed in cobalt blue finished with pearlware glaze.

The center of the plate features 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 boy and his dog (carrying a hat in its mouth) being welcomed by his grandfather, who has brought his grandchild the rare gift of a watch to tell time, considered a very rare and special gift in the period).

THE NEW WATCH. Who when I could both read and spell And in my writing got on well Bought me a watch the time to tell. MY GRANDFATHER.

The plate is marked with the impressed backstamp of ROGERS, an esteemed pottery maker in the Staffordshire region of England in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The plate is in perfect, unused condition with no chips cracks or repairs and only minor typical flaws from the making. Light weight and beautifully potted. A beautifully sentimental plate about the love between a grandparent and a grandchild.
