James Kent "Old Foley" The Way to Wealth - Wise Sayings Black Transferware Plate 2
Brand James Kent
This is a vintage black transferware plate produced by James Kent as part of a series of plates titled "The Way to Wealth - Wise Sayings". I have six different plates in this series and they are all adorable.
This particular one depicts several customers who bought shoddy goods from a "cheap shop" and attempting to return them. Unfortunately the shop is closed and promises to reopen in a "few days". Captioned below is:
"Buy what thou hast no need of and ere long thou wilt sell thy necessaries. At a great Pennyworth pause awhile. Many are ruined by buying bargains."
Collect all six!
Plate condition is great with no chips or cracks. Little, if any, crazing.
