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
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.
