CHILDS TRANSFERWARE ABC PLATE

POLYCHROME AESTHETIC DESIGN ~ HORSE

W. Adams and Sons ~ Tunstal Staffordshire England

1890

This is a 7 3/8 " child's transferware Alphabet plate. The plate is light weight and beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze.

It is transfer printed in dark brown with the entire alphabet gracing the perimeter, complete with twining vines and a red band. The central transfer is of a Japanesque Fan surrounding a wonderful horse wrapped in wild grasses and flowers. A bright butterfly flits overhead and horseshoes hide among the foliage.

Plates like this were made as gifts for good children and rewards of merit, used to aid in children's education and moral training, and to encourage their imaginations.

The condition of this ABC plate is EXCELLENT, clean shiny and bright, appears to have never been used. Nicely potted and the transfers were applied with a good deal of attention to detail.

Please email me with any questions or if you would like to see additional photos.
