PINTADO

What kind of a bird is this?

"Pintado" 5.25 inch plate

A guinea fowl.  The pattern was probably intended as a gift for a child.  The border has a particularly elegant combination of colors; blue, green and black.  It features a classical design of Greek keys, Vitruvian scrolls, grapes and grape leaves.

Seen below are two more patterns from what appears to be an odd assortment for a series.


Classical figure of Faith (always shown holding a cross) on a 4.5 inch cup plate. "Faith," along with 'Hope" and "Charity," features often as a pattern on a child's plate

Horse pattern on a  6.12 inch plate

Is it possible the patterns were intended for adults?
