11-5664

BLACK TRANSFER CHILD'S PLATE WITH CAT 1840 Plate,8 inches. The pattern is titled "Little Titty", perhaps because the child had a lisp! The black (rather more charcoal) print shows a young girl cuddling a cat or kitten. There is a molded border with some orange and green clobbering and a pink lustre line near the rim. Condition is good, with some minor scuffing on the edge and staining on the back. There are no chips or cracks. The plate was probably made in Staffordshire around 1840-1845. If you like cats, this is the item for you!

CHILD'S MUG A GIFT FROM THE POTTERY 1830 Mug, 2.5 inches high by 2.75 inches in diameter. Children's patterns were often intended as souvenirs, as well as teaching tools and gifts for good behavior.

PRESENT FOR MY DEAR BOY CHILD'S PLATE 1830 Plate, 5.24 inches. Children's patterns were often intended as gifts for good children, souvenirs, and christening gifts. The man and woman on this clobbered black printed plate look as if they are discussing the gift they want to give their "dear boy". The molded border of swags, roses and honeysuckle was used by Baker, Bevans & Irwin in their Glamorgan Pottery in Swansea, Wales.(1814-1838). Condition is excellent for a child's plate made around 1830. See all of the photos for the details.

Click for more detail...

11-5655

CHILD'S PLATE MY GRANDFATHER 1835 Plate, 5.75 inches. The pattern is copied from "My Grandfather", an illustrated poem by William Upton. It was published by William Darton, Jr. (1812-1815). It was common for English potters to copy patterns from books, magazines or picture sheets. This was possible because copyright laws before 1842 in England were not well enforced. The entire verse on the plate reads: Who when I could both read and spell/And in my writing got on well/Bought me a watch the time to tell/MY GRANDFATHER. The plate is printed in blue with a molded greyhounds, goat, and butterfly painted border. Condition is good with only light wear and staining on edges and the back. The plate was probably made between 1830 and 1835. If you need a gift for a loved grandfather or if you just love the pattern and verse, this is the plate for you!

11-5658

BLACK TRANSFER JUG WITH CHILDREN'S PATTERNS Jug, 8.5 inches high by 8 inches from the handle to the spout. This unusual jug has a huge lion resting near a farmer leaning against a hay fork. Other than the lion being a symbol of Britain, the symbolism escapes me. The jug is printed with many children's patterns. Two are printed under the spout, two are inside the jug, one is under the handle and one is on the bottom! There is a two inch tight hairline at the rim on one side of the jug. The rest of the jug is in excellent shape. Take a look at all of the photos to see the many patterns. The jug was probably made in Staffordshire around 1840-1860. If you are looking for an unusual piece of transferware, this is the one for you!

73144

DISHY ANIMALS ABC - AN ABC and Pottery Book I have published an alphabet and pottery book for children and adults:
Inexpensive children's china was made in Britain throughout the 19th century as gifts for good behavior, christening presents, souvenirs, and rewards for excellent in school. It was inexpensive because the pattern was transfer-printed on the pottery rather than hand-painted. Of the many hundreds or perhaps even thousands of patterns made, I have culled patterns that include animals. Animals on children's pottery both delight and instruct. What a lovely way to learn the ABCs! The book is a 9 by 7 inch paper book with 32 pages. Take a look at all of the photos to see some examples of the pages.

FRANKLIN'S MAXIMS CHILD'S PLATE KEEP THY SHOP Plate, 4.25 inches. This pattern is part of a series of Franklin's Maxims or Morals that were very popular on children's plates.
