From the Collection of Mario Buatta Pair of Botanical Dishes Creamware

$1,500per set


Provenance: From the Private Collection of Mario Buatta This pair of 18th-century botanical dishes is part of the private collection of Mario Buatta. This is an especially lovely pair of dishes. Mario loved the beautiful flowers painted on English botanical dishes. He was our very best client for four decades. Just after the very successful Sotheby's sale Bardith was privileged to purchase items from his estate. This pair of 18th century hand painted creamware dishes was made by Swansea in Wales circa 1790. Dishes showing a single botanical flower were especially popular in late 18th century Great Britain as the scientific revolution began and British ships traveled the world often returning with new and unique specimens of flowers. The Swansea factory in Wales provided some of the very finest botanicals painted on dishes. The designs for these dishes were taken from Curtis's Botanical Magazine begun in 1787. On the back of the dish is the name of the flower inscribed in iron red. Each dish is named on the back in underglaze red: The pair of dishes measure 7.75" diameter. On the reverse, they are named: "Two Leave'd Lady's Sliper" and "Virgin's Bower" London..."Condition: Excellent Price for the pair $1500 For an image of similar Swansea Botanical dishes See: Jonathan Gray "The Cambrian Company, Swansea Pottery in London..."
