Rare Childs Miniature Pearlware Platter

PASTORAL SCENERY ~ GRAZING SHEEP

Staffordshire or Northeastern England c1820

This is an extremely scarce historical Staffordshire miniature platter or meat plate, c1820. It was made as part of a complete children's toy transferware dinner service. The little oval tray measures 5 inches long with a flared rim and flat bottom. The piece is transfer printed in a rich cobalt blue with a pearlware glaze.

The platter is finely detailed, depicting the view of sheep grazing in a pasture above a scenic view of a castle , encircled with a forest of trees. (The figural scenery was originally cut to fit a round plate, but the transfer was reused on this oval form, leaving a striking white border.) The pattern name is unknown and the exact maker has not been identified. 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 a fleabite on the back edge but no chips, cracks or repairs. Stilt marks and kiln blobs front and back, and other minor imperfections original to the making and typical of these early wares, but outstanding overall considering age and scarcity of the form and pattern. Examples are extremely hard to come by. The platter will make a fine addition to any collection of childrens wares or miniature doll house transferware.
