This is such a charming little plate from Regency period England. This child’s nursery ware plate was produced in England during the 19th century, circa 1820. The plate features a blue and white transfer printed design titled ‘The Present. My Grandmother.’
The design depicts a grandmother playing with her grandchild. This is such a wonderful little item, we see a little girl running out of her house to greet her grandmother who has a doll for her.
The text is an extract from a William Upton poem titled ‘My Grandmother.’ The text reads ‘The Presents. Who came to see me far and near, With cakes and toys, throughout the year, And called me her sweet little dear? My Grandmother.’
The plate also features the most wonderful raised vine leaf border, this is one of the nicest borders we have seen! What a fabulous little plate, this lovely item has such wide appeal. Perfect for anyone who loves, blue and white, dolls, toys or anyone who is looking for a gift for a grandmother or grandchild.
This fine plate was produced as one of a pair, each sold separately in our store. Please see our collection of 18th and 19th century art and antiques listed separately in our store.
