EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE PLATE 

THE PROGRESS OF THE QUARTEM LOAF  c. 1830

This very early child's plate measures 5 1/8 inches in diameter.  The press molded border is highly decorated with scrolled flowers and vines.  All of this is covered in a very heavy coating of a blueish pearlware glaze.  

The central dark blue image transfer is of THE THRASHER ~ And see another friend appear, With active flail, the corn to thrash.  To separate the clustering ears, And clear the Grain from stalk and trash.

This is from a series of 17 different patterns by Mary Elliot, referring to the Corn laws in England during the early 1800’s.

Condition is excellent and displays beautifully.  Clean and bright.  A very old child's plate with no chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs.
