A late 19th Century Staffordshire Children's Alphabet plate entitled "Public Buildings at Philadelphia." With a molded alphabet rim, the 7 ¾" diameter brown transfer plate (with brown and green overglaze enamel) shows Philadelphia's City Hall, at the time, one of the largest office buildings ever built. It was completed around the turn of the century and topped with a gigantic statue of William Penn, founder of the City. The plate is not marked and the maker is unknown.

Condition is very fine. There are no chips, cracks, lines, restorations, etc. It is clean, with only some very minor glaze crackle on the bottom.
