Here's an antique hand colored Staffordshire transferware plate dating from around 1850. The scene shows a minister, a Father Matthew, "Administering the Abstinence Pledge" as the plate says. The plate is 6 1/4" at its widest It has a raised floral design on the border and a pink lustre edge. The octagonal shape of the plate is more unusual than the plain round shape. The transfer has been hand colored. The plate is in very nice condition and has the type of crazing on the surface that has to be there for its age. It's also important to note that a couple of very faint vertical lines are perhaps noticeable in the photos, they are just caused in the transfer process and are not hairlines - the images in the transfers at this time just didn't always work perfectly. This charming plate shows the kind of lessons children were exposed to keep them on track. It may be the perfect gift for someone who may do well to take the pledge!
