VHRN Newsnote: Vincentiana Purchase of the Week Early 19th century transferware plate of Saint Vincent

The Vincentiana Collection in Archives and Special Collections at DePaul University's Richardson Library has recently acquired an early-19th century decorative transferware plate depicting Saint Vincent de Paul rescuing foundlings in the snow-covered streets. This types of decorative plates were very popular in bourgeois households. This plate is numbered "6" in a series entitled "Morale en action." The idiosyncratic spelling of Vincent de Paule dates it from the first third of the 19th century. The Vincentiana collection has a number of these plates in its collection.
