Rare to find early Transferware Plate in that luscious Mulberry Purple color we love, this is a religious motto plate, with a child kneeling in prayer in the center. Made in Staffordshire around 1830-1836, what a treasure this is if you are a believer! From 1 Samuel 3:10, "Speak Lord For Thy Servant Heareth" is printed on the bottom, at the top is The Sun of Righteousness. I love this one!
Beautifully embellished with floral designs, fruit, and wheat around the scalloped rim. Being this old, this is not for you if you are a perfectionist, over the more than 180 years this treasure has acquired a chip on the rim as shown. I call it well-earned patina, and the grace of time, but if that is not what you would call it, please don't purchase this lovely decorative piece. Unmarked, aged, and oh so special! Measures 9-3/4".
