19th Century Staffordshire Childs Nursery Plate

This delightful child’s nursery plate was produced in England circa 1820 as one of a set of four plates each extolling a virtue (this description is for the one plate regarding Loyalty). The plate would have been produced for a child and features a wonderful raised floral border with over painted polychrome enamel detailing to each flower. The center of the plate features a patriotic transfer printed scene depicting the theme of Loyalty with an injured sailor returning home from overseas; he is walking with a stick as he has proudly sacrificed a limb in battle for king and country. His young children walk next to him. The verse reads as follows:

‘Flowers That Never Fade. Loyalty. I love my country & my King. Their glory is my pride, That urged my arm when fighting by my comrades side by side.’
This is such a charming piece of English transferware, it will display excellently.

Reference: Plate 1010 in Gifts For Good Children by Noel Riley.

Measuring: Diameter 7 3/8 inch (18.5 cm).

Condition: The tiniest minor graze to foot rim and two minor fleabites to rim, barely worth mentioning.
