Pair of Pearlware Miniature Childs Toy Plates

CHILDHOOD AMUSEMENTS

Staffordshire England 1830

This is a pair of rare miniature transferware cup plates or child’s toy plates. They were originally part of a series of miniature plates, possibly a toy dinner set, depicting juvenile games and childrens garden amusements. The little plates measure 3-1/2 inches in diameter, transfer printed in black, hand outlined in cobalt blue and finished with pearlware glaze.

The central images show a girl exuberantly jumping rope and a boy whipping a top. Whimsical, desirable period decoration, naive and folky charm, especially hard to come by a pair in this miniature size.

As would be expected, the plates are unmarked. Probably made in the Staffordshire region of England though they may hail from Leeds or another northern potting region in the early part of the nineteenth century. 

The plates are in great condition, with no chips cracks or repairs. Minor typical manufacturing imperfections original to the making. Offered as is, these rare tiny plates are pocket sized works of art and make a nice addition to any folk art or early ceramics collection.
