ANTIQUE CHILDS ALPHABET ABC PLATE
OLD MOTHER HUBBARD
BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO ~ Staffordshire England ~ c. 1880
This 6 5/8 " alphabet plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich dark brown with great color polychrome hand painting in cinnamon brown, cobalt blue and green.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a central image of the classic Nursery Rhyme ~ Old Mother Hubbard. Ma Hubbard with her begging dog and very empty cupboard.
Displays beautifully and in excellent condition. No utensil marks, hairlines, cracks, or repairs. Clean and bright, appears to have never been used.
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.
