Charming subject for a child’s plate, don’t you think: “Rat Hunting” with a black (or possibly very dark green) transfer showing 3 children and a dog peering into a hole or burrow in the ground. The plate dates c. 1860 (perhaps a bit earlier) and the children are dressed in splendid Victorian outfits, and one boy is carrying a hoop. The plate is 5 ½” in diameter and has a molded flower and vine border. It has a pearlware glaze with strong pooling on the back. It is in very fine condition with no chips, cracks, lines, etc. There are 2 darker semi-circular areas on the back, which are glaze pooling due to a worker’s fingerprints. Just a little personal touch to the plate. Times and tastes in decorative subjects were very obviously different in the second half the 19th century.
