This fabulous little pearlware child’s plate was produced in England during the early 19th century, circa 1810 to 1820 The plate features a hand colored transfer printed design depicting a young shepherd boy resting on the hillside with his flock. he looks a little forlorn, perhaps thinking of a beloved. We particularly like the molded floral border, it really is so pretty and very crisp in the detailing. His blue frock coat and yellow breaches are just lovely. The reverse features the impressed mark for ‘Moore, & Co’ that is to say Samuel Moore & Co. It is quite rare to find a manufactures mark on any children’s pottery. We have only ever seen children’s pieces by Samuel Moore and Co in our reference books. Samuel Moore and Co (formerly John Brunton 1796-1803) were a Tyne and Wear pottery who were producing from 1803 onward from Sunderland, Durham, England. They are perhaps most well known for their Sunderland luster pottery plaques.
This is the perfect item for anyone who loves early nursery ware or has a passion for farming and the countryside.
