REBEKAH AT THE WELL

BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO

Staffordshire England ~ c. 1880

This 7 1/2 " plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich chocolate brown with great polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of gold, green,and cobalt blue.

In addition to the ABC alphabet transfer, this plate has a central scrolled cartouche of Rebekah at the Well. The subject is from the Old Testament (Genesis 24: 11-17). Abraham's servant, Eliezer, was sent by his master to the city of Nahor in Mesopotamia to find a suitable wife for his son, Isaac. At the well outside the town walls, he met Rebekah who was filling a pitcher with water. He returned to Canaan with Rebekah, who married Isaac and became the mother of Esau and Jacob.

Condition is good, clean and bright with no scratching or wear. There is a 1" hairline to the rear and light age toning consistent with age.

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.
