BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1880
This large 8 1/4" alphabet plate has a crisp image transfer printed in rich dark bittersweet chocolate brown with great color polychrome hand painting in cinnamon brown, cherry red and green.
The image is part of the Wild Animals series coveted by collectors. This transfer, rarely seen on the market, will be a special abc plate in your collection.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer, this plate has a central cartouche of a very large camel, a herder or nomad and his dog along the edge of a great desert.
Very good condition, light staining to the bottom.
