Coalport Porcelain Plate, Blue with Hand Painted Flowers, Regency 1827

$335

About

This is a beautiful dessert plate made by Coalport in 1827, which was the Regency era. The plate has a beautifully moulded rim, a bright blue ground and hand painted flower reserves. Coalport was one of the leading potters in 19th and 20th century Staffordshire. They worked alongside other great potters such as Spode, Davenport and Minton, and came out with many innovative designs. When we say "Coalport" we usually think of the one Coalport factory that became famous, but in its beginning years there were two factories, one run by John Rose and the other by his brother Thomas Rose. Thomas Rose went into partnership with Robert Anstice and Robert Horton and they were located directly opposite John Rose, across the canal. The brothers' factories had much in common with each other and they shared many different shapes and patterns. Ultimately, the John Rose factory proved more profitable and John Rose bought Thomas' factory in 1814, making it the one Coalport factory that became so famous. Many of the Coalport items, of either factory, are now collectors' items. This plate would have belonged to a large dessert service; dinner parties were an important part of social life for the wealthy classes and dessert would be served on an abundantly decorated and colourful dessert service like this. The plate is potted in heavy, white bone china. The ground colour is what was called "Brunswick blue", which we would now probably call "Royal blue". There are four flower reserves with beautiful hand painted flowers, as well as a very graceful bouquet in the centre of the plate. There are nice scroll details moulded around the rim as well as the centre of the plate, which have been picked off in gilt. Condition report: The plate is in excellent antique condition with no damage, crazing, or repairs. There is some wear, as visible in the pictures (see last picture for the wear on the rim), and the blue flowers in the centre image have faded - this is often the case with Coalport's blue enamel paint of this period. The plate is unmarked except the faded pattern number 2/382. Antique British porcelain is never perfect. Kilns were fired on coal in the 1800s, and this meant that china from that period can have some firing specks from flying particles. British makers were also known for their experimentation, and sometimes this resulted in technically imperfect results. Due to the shrinkage in the kiln, items can have small firing lines or develop crazing over time, which should not be seen as damage but as an imperfection of the maker's recipes, probably unknown at the time of making. Items have often been used for many years and can have normal signs of wear, and gilt can have signs of slight disintegration even if never handled. I will reflect any damage, repairs, obvious stress marks, crazing or heavy wear in the item description but some minor scratches, nicks, stains and gilt disintegration can be normal for vintage items and need to be taken into account. There is widespread confusion on the internet about the difference between chips and nicks, or hairlines and cracks. I will reflect any damage as truthfully as I can, i.e. a nick is a tiny bit of damage smaller than 1mm and a chip is something you can easily see with the eye; a glazing line is a break in the glazing only; hairline is extremely tight and/or superficial and not picked up by the finger; and a crack is obvious both to the eye and the finger. Etcetera - I try to be as accurate as I can and please feel free to ask questions or request more detailed pictures! Dimensions: (diameter) 23cm (9").
