Spongeware Rabbitware Ironstone Plate ~ Bulls Eye 1900
Staffordshire, England ~ c.1900
This is a colorful hand painted transferware plate, c. 1900, from the genre of rabbit ware plates that have become very popular. 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 three rabbits and frog in the center of this plate are transfer printed in brown and painted with enamels in yellow, brown and green. The border is painted in the Bulls Eye pattern. The plate measures 9 1/4 inches in diameter and transfer printed in black and painted with enamels in yellow, brown and green. This folk art is a highly collected art form.
The piece is in outstanding condition. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs.
