Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Uncommon 8" Staffordshire Child's Plate with "Early Rising" Moral.
Dating around 1830, this beauty features a Fancy Embossed Rim with a Center Transfer Print of Two Young People Watching an Early Morning Fox Hunt. The series was called "Flowers That Never Fade" with each plate highlighting a moral virtue. This one is "Early Rising" and reads, "The sun is up, we'll brush the dew. To hear the huntsmen's gay halloo, & hark the dog's enliv'ning cry. Now see! the horsemen gallop by."
Excellent Condition. A faint line in the glaze only on the back center. That's it! No chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. A small dot at 3 o'clock and an 1/8" clay flip on the edge--both in the making (closeup).
