This large 8 1/4 " plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich chocolate brown with great five color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of golden yellow, cobalt blue, light blue, green and cinnamon brown.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a central cartouche of Robinson Crusoe and Goat at oceanside.
The plate is in very good condition, clean and bright with no chips, no cracks and no repairs. There is a darkened craze line to the rear only.
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.
