Child's Stencil Spongeware Miniature Toy Plate

RABBITS AND CARROTS

Creil-Montereau, France

c.1920

This is a stunning toy stick spatter or stencil and sponge decorated plate, originally part of a complete miniature children's dinner service. The measures a diminutive 4" in diameter.

The center of the plate features a pair of whimsical rabbits -- they appear to be in discussions about where their next carrot is going to come from. The image is stenciled in bright yellow-orange with black detailing, and the rim of the plate is decorated with black sponged paint.

The pattern name is "Rabbits and Carrots", (de Lapins et de Carottes in French).

The piece was made by Creil Montereau, one of the faienceries in the North of France. The plate is marked only with an impressed mark that reads "M 1".

The plate is in great condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. Light overall crazing consistent with age. This little plate was impeccably potted and the stencil was applied with a good deal of attention to detail.

Children's spongeware or stencil ware of this quality is quite scarce and highly sought after. The image of the rabbits is simply delightful. The plate will make a great addition to your collection of children's dishes and will make a wonderful gift for a child who still believes in the Easter bunny!
