Coalport Porcelain Plate, Green with Sèvres Style Flowers and Gilt, 1882



This is a beautiful dessert plate made by Coalport in 1882, which was the Victorian era. This plate is in the "Sèvres" style with an apple green ground and flower reserves bordered with beautiful gilding. 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. It was potted in fine, light and smooth bone china. The ground color is bright apple green, which was popular in the 1880s. This style was made by Coalport throughout the 19th century, initially with hand painted flowers but you can see that these flowers were printed in outline and then carefully hand colored. Even though this would have made it possible to increase production at reduced prices, the work was done to the highest standard, making this plate compete with its hand painted originals. There is very fine gilding around the flower reserves and particularly around the center of the plate. Condition report: The plate is in perfect antique condition with no damage, crazing, or repairs, and no wear; it seems to have never been used. The plate is marked with the green Coalport mark, the pattern number 62721A and an impressed date stamp for the year 1882. 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. Dimensions: (diameter) 22.5cm (8.8").
