Rare Brown Transfer Printed Childs Plate
Boy and Newfy Dog
INFANCY ~ GOING FOR A RIDE
Barker and Son Staffordshire, England 1850

This is another stunning transferware toddy plate or childs plate. Originally part of a child's tea set or dinner service, the plate measures 4-3/8 inches in diameter. The color is a rich chocolate brown or sepia with a pearlware glaze. The set is impeccably potted and light bodied.

The plate is decorated with a whimsical image of a young boy going for ride on a big dog probably a Newfoundland. The rim is decorated with net border with animal cartouches alternating rabbits dogs and a horse with a cat. The busy and imaginative decoration is very rich, with little white space.

There is no maker's mark. We've seen the pattern marked Adams but the image, originally from a child's early primer book, was used by several potteries during the 19th century. The authors of the book "Understanding Miniature British Pottery & Porcelain" (Maurice and Evelyn Milbourne) identifies the pattern name as "Infancy" and attributes it to Barker and Son from the Staffordshire district c. 1850.

The plate is in great condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. Stilt marks, normal glaze crazing, and a dot of kiln fleck, and other minor typical manufacturing imperfections original to the making, a sign of authentic early Victorian era industry. A very desirable pattern, perfect for friends of animals , and advanced collectors of unusual doll dishes.
