James Kent "Old Foley" The Way to Wealth - Wise Sayings Does Thou Love Life Black Transferware Plate 4


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 the village ne'er-do-wells slacking at the local pub as the hours tick away.  Captioned below is:

"Doest thou love life?  Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.  The sleeping fox catches no poultry.  There will be sleeping enough in the grave."


Collect all six!


Plate condition is great with no chips or cracks.  Little, if any, crazing.


Measures: 8"
