EARLY CHILDS RED TRANSFERWARE PLATE

FLOWERS THAT NEVER FADE

CONTEMPLATION

Staffordshire England    c. 1840

The wonderful child's small pearlware plate is 5 inches in diameter.  Wonderful impressed border.

The image is of a naive scene of two young girls contemplating life as they watch a flower blossom open then fade.

FLOWERS THAT NEVER FADE ~~ CONTEMPLATION

Lord, what is life? 'Tis like a flow'r.

That blossoms & is gone!  We see it flourish for an hour.  With all its beauty on.

Condition is great, never used.
