Antique Black Boy Negro & Bird Estate Plate or Dish

Here is an antique Victorian era porcelain plate with a great humorous design. The hilarious scene depicts a little African American boy in quite the dilemma. The main action is hidden behind the trunk of a tree, but you can surmise that the goose like bird has the boy by his manhood. The boy is in a great deal of distress with tears falling from his eyes and his mouth shaped in an O. Even his feet are lifted off the ground! The caption reads THE EARLY BIRD CATCHES THE WORM. Comical to us - not so much to him. The scene was done by transfer, but it looks like the color washes may have been hand painted - it is hard to tell. The plate is a smaller size and measures about 5 1/4" by 5" and is about 15/16" high having a slightly curved bowl like shape. Good antique condition with light age appropriate wear - on the bottom of the plate there is a little chipping as seen in the close up photo. You can tell this is old wear. I wasn't sure if I should list this in the antiques section, but decided that the collectors who would love this most would look in Black memorabilia or Black Americana. This will be awesome to display or add to your collection - fun and funny! We think this is probably a relatively rare, scarce or seldom seen piece. Please feel free to email us with reasonable offers and we're happy to answer any questions you may have. You will treasure this!!!
