St. Augustineware Staffordshire Mottoware Rabbit Plate
A rare St. Augustine Ware decorative plate. This one reads; 'Some sing the praises of Camenbert & others of Fromage de Brie but neither compare with a Welsh Rabbit rare, for that's just the cheese for me.'
Vibrant colours, whimsical, charming & absolutely wonderful graphics. The plate measures 9 3/4" w.
*Very little is known about this series of Staffordshire mottoware produced in the 1900's through 1920's. The plates feature rabbits, frogs with quaint rather humorous text around each surround. The backdrop is generally a tradional English thatched roof house countered with very beautifully illustrated animals. The expression on the rabbits faces are wonderful.
