Pigeon Pie and many other name and motto plates great thing to collect
As transfer printing came more available in the late 18th Century, motto plates, nursery and christening plates and mugs became more affordable for mass production.
Like the one opposite often were a mix of both with a transfer with an embossed pattern on the pottery then "clobbered" after, means hand painting as you can see this painting was basic to say the least.
A great fun items to collect, many can be very affordable from £10 to £150 the cuter the better and hard hitting proverbs rather than highly religious ones tend to be more sought after.
