From a very popular series of Staffordshire Children's Alphabet Plate (Wild Animal Series), this plate shows the Tiger with polychrome decoration. The letters that surround the central image are brown transfer. And the plate is marked "B.P. & Co." (Brownhill Pottery), and has an English registry mark which dates the plate to September 29, 1882.
The plate is 6 ½" in diameter and is in very fine condition with no chips, cracks, lines, restorations, etc. A nice example from an important series of children's ware.
