EARLY CHILDS BLACK TRANSFERWARE ABC PLATE
FLOWERS THAT NEVER FADE
Staffordshire England c. 1840
The wonderful child's pearlware alphabet plate is 6 1/2 " in diameter.
The entire alphabet, A through Z / Z being backwards, is press moulded along the rim and wrapped in two bands of dark red striping. The image is of a naive scene of a young boy and girl holding hands, basket of goodies nearby. A linnet sings a spring song from the tree branches. Central transfer reads: FLOWERS THAT NEVER FADE --- INNOCENCE --- In every grove the linnets sing. To welcome the return of spring.
The smiling fields once more look green. In ev'ry hedge a flower is seen.
Condition is very good with no chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. There is a small area of glaze flaking in the center of the transfer.
