"Poor Richard's Way To Wealth" plate

This small 'Poor Richard's Way to Wealth' plate has a brown transfer print in the centre depicting several figures on the steps of a savings bank. There are also three rows of embossed daisy patterns around the border.It is thought this could be children's plate designed to be educational.   'The Way to Wealth', originally a preface to the 1758 edition of Franklin's beloved 'Poor Richard's Almanack', presents a brief fable of a local wise man, Father Abraham, quoting Poor Richard to an eager crowd. In that inspiring tale, Franklin steps out of the past and shares his famed maxims about wealth, knowledge, virtue and all other elements of business success.
