PEARLWARE CHILDS ALPHABET ABC PLATE
NATIONS OF THE WORLD
BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO ~Staffordshire England ~ c. 1880
This 7 1/8" plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich chocolate brown with great three color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of wine red and cobalt blue.
The image is part of the Nations of the World series coveted by collectors. This transfer, rarely seen on the market, will be a special abc plate in your collection.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a central scrolled cartouche of a Venetian, oar in hand, as he stands by his punt or boat with the magnificent city of Venice in the background.
Condition is excellent with light edge roughness to the touch possibly from a plate hanger. A great dark transfer.
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.
