Staffordshire, England ~ c.1900
This is a colorful hand painted transferware plate, c. 1900, from the genre of rabbit ware plates and very little is known about the actual origin of these wonderfully whimsical rabbit wares.
Rabbitware is a combination of transfer printing and stick sponge or spatterware. The plate measures 9 1/4 inches in diameter and transfer printed in black and painted with enamels in yellow, brown, blue, red and green. The center is painted in the Bulls-Eye pattern and rabbits run along the rim. This folk art is a highly collected art form.
Never Used. The piece is in outstanding condition. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs.
