Scarce Spatterware Child’s Plate

CARELESSNESS and MISTAKE

Newcastle England c 1820

Dating to the early 19th century, this childs plate measures 6 inches in diameter with a scalloped rim with ten moulded floral elements, finely transfer printed in black and decorated with cobalt blue sponged spatter ware design and finished with pearlware glaze.

The center of the plate contains a cartouche containing a religious maxim or motto:

MORE MISFORTUNES ARE OCCASIONED BY CARELESSNESS THAN BY MISTAKE

A bit of fire and brimstone, or simply a biblical way to send an instructive message to teach children the importance of being careful.

The plate resembles the early Staffordshire wares but is marked with an impressed backstamp of PATTERSON, one of the northern potteries in Newcastle England c. 1790-1810. The plate is in great condition with very little wear and no chips cracks or repairs. Clean and bright, appears to have been cherished by its original owner. Light weight and beautifully potted.
