EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC PLATE
Goldfinch and Haffinch
BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO Staffordshire England c. 1880
This 7 plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich dark chocolate brown with great four color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of red, green, cinnamon brown, and cobalt blue.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has two birds, one a Goldfinch and one a Haffinch, perched on a branch overlooking the meadows.
Condition is very good with wear consistent with age and use. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Plates like these were given as gifts to children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well. A lovely addition to your ABC collection.
