Child Brown Transferware Plate Little Mae Pets Cats Dog Allerton 1880 Antique Uk

Early Brown Transferware Childs Plate

LITTLE MAE WITH PETS
Charles Allerton & Sons Staffordshire England c 1890

This antique child's transfer printed dish dates to 1890. The plate measures about 5 3/8" in diameter and were originally part of a complete toy tea service. The color is an earthy dark chocolate brown. The plate was made by Charles Allerton & Sons, a pottery manufacturer in the Staffordshire region of England who was well known for his whimsical children's tea sets. The influence of the Aesthetic movement on the pattern designs captures the Victorian love of nature and the exotic.

The plate depicts young Little Mae sitting on a stoop in a doorway with a kitten on her lap, a cat drinking milk from a bowl, a dog sitting beside her and a bird looking on from overhead.This endearing scene is framed by an aesthetic background of flowers, birds and lots of geometrical whimsies. The rims are decorated with acriss-cross border and fruittrim.

The plate is marked with pattern number 780 and registration number 106741, and 'Staffordshire England' registered to the Staffordshire pottery maker Charles Allerton in the last quarter of the 19th century and made for export.

The plate is in great condition with no chips cracks or repairs. The workmanship is haphazard, which is one of the reasons many people collect these dishes...not fine china, and not meant to be; it was made for children and probably considered disposable. The transfers are not all aligned neatly, there are stray skips and slips of border trim and little bumps and dips that were glazed over in the factory and runny smeary glaze. The primitive and hasty style adds to the folksy charm of 19th century childrens' pottery.

Please send us an email before the sale ends with any questions or if you are looking for something in particular or would like to see additional photos.

Thanks for offerding!
