Scarce Miniature Cup Plate

MONASTERY ON THE HILL

William Hackwood Staffordshire England ~ c.1840

This is beautiful dark blue historical cup plate, c. 1840. Technically a child's miniature toy plate, measuring 3 3/8" in diameter, it is impeccably potted and finely transfer printed with a pearlware glaze. It depicts a monastery on a hill, with a farmer and his cow walking at the foot of a hill, near the farmer's humble cottage in the foreground. Morning glories and lilies on a vine wind around the border. The pattern name is most commonly known as Monastery Hill or Institution.

This diminutive plate bears the impressed mark of Hackwood, an esteemed pottery in the Staffordshire district of England in the early to mid 1800s. The quality of the form and detailing of the image is far superior to what would be expected on this diminutive sized piece.

The plate is in immaculate condition, with no chips, stains, cracks or repairs.
