Early Staffordshire Childs Pearlware Name Plate
CHRISTENING GIFT for MARY
Staffordshire England c 1830
This is an early child's transferware plate, circa 1830. It measures 6-1/4 inches in diameter. The plate is transfer printed in black with an engraved decorative cartouche surrounding the name MARY in block letters in the center of the well, encircled with a three-color red green blue moulded floral border and scalloped rim, finished with pearlware glaze. The plate is beautifully potted with decorative flourish.
The piece is unmarked. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district. Plates like this were made as christening presents or gifts for good children and rewards of merit, used to aid in childrens education and moral training in the early to mid-19th century.
The plate is in great condition. An uncommon name scarcely found on christening wares of this period.
