This is a colorful hand painted transferware platter, c. 1900.
Rabbitware is a combination of transfer printing and stick sponge or spatterware.

The border is painted in a variation of the Adams Rose and Bulls Eye patterns. The deep platter measures 14 1/2 inches long x 10 1/8 inches wide and transfer printed in brown and painted with enamels in yellow, brown and green. This folk art is a highly collected art form.
No signs of use. The piece is in good condition. There is a tight hairline to the left side of the platter.
