An early 19th century, blue transfer printed child’s plate. This is impressed, to the reverse, with a crown, and it dates from c.1820. The crown is the mark of Clews Pottery, Staffordshire. The transfer print depicts a rider being dragged by his horse and the verse reads:

“Once ere my pony I could well restrain
He threw me off and dragg’d me by the rein
But for this vicious trick I’ll never feign
MY GRATITUDE”.

The border to the plate is finely moulded with a mixture of flowers and foliage. There is some staining to the plate, on the reverse, and there is one very small chip to the rim.

Dimensions: Diameter 15.5cm. Depth 1.9cm.
