The title of this plate is "Misfortune at Tulip Hall" and it includes a short verse: "A shelf gave way, another follow'd, Ma'am Tulip screm'd, the gard'ner hallooed, while Syntax join'd the Gen'ral Bawling and soon upon the ground was sprawling."
The hand colored transfer (against the khaki background color of the plate) shows Dr. Syntax on the floor reaching for flower pots. Note the puppy dog at Dr. Syntax's feet.
The plate has the Emerald tulip border and is marked on the back: "1911, Buffalo Pottery, Emeral Deldare Ware Underglaze" with the Buffalo Mark.
