VERY EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE PLATE
FOR MY DEAR GIRL
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840
This antique English small 5 3/4" plate has a beautifully applied crisp image transfer printed in rich black. The plate has a pearlware glaze.
An impressed border of alternating pinwheel daisies complement the rich transfer that is hand painted clobbering in shades of burnt umber, bright golden yellow and green. A fantastic color combination. Red hand painted bands around the rim and the bowl.
The transfer has a lovely scrolled cartouche with small delicate flowers surrounding " FOR MY DEAR GIRL". What a great gift 165 years ago for a good girl.
Condition is excellent. Clean and bright.
