Earthenware Transfer and Floral Decorated Plate ca. 1825Earthenware Transfer and Floral Decorated Plate ca. 1825Earthenware Transfer and Floral Decorated Plate ca. 1825

These earthenware plates from the Staffordshire district come in various sizes, and are usually rather busily decorated with central motifs and raised borders, all with bright enameling. Probably very inexpensive in their day, many were likely used as gifts for christenings or other childhood celebrations, or simply as cottage decoration. As is often the case, probably considered not in the best or most fashionable taste when made, the naive charm is what makes them appealing to us today.

This plate has a central transfer scene of a cottage, and a border of relief molded flowers, all painted in multicolor enamels.

Unmarked, but probably Staffordshire district, ca. 1825

Size: Approximately 6.5" diameter

Condition: Good. Flaking to enamels on floral border, glaze has wear. No chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
