EARLY PINK LUSTRE PLATE
FRANKLIN'S PROVERBS Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840
This delightful 7 1/4" plate has a crisp image transfer printed in a rich plum color. The plate features a border of flowers and foliage hand painted in a brilliant pink luster. The central transfer is of a woman primping in front of a mirror whilst two others attend to a fallen chair. The kitchen fire burns bright.

Condition is very good, a tiny kiln fracture line along the rim.
Plates like these were given as gifts to children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well. A lovely and rare addition to your collection.
