Set 6 Imari Dessert Plates Late 18th Century Turner’s Patent Ironstone England$2,340.00
This set of six plates, crafted by John Turner circa 1795, features the exquisite Imari color palette of iron red, cobalt blue, and radiant gold. The color combination creates a vibrant and striking look, and the design of a dragon soaring amidst a lush garden is captivating.

The Turner family of potters was active in Staffordshire, England, from 1756-1829. Their manufactures have been compared favorably with those of Josiah Wedgwood and Sons. Josiah Wedgwood was a friend and a commercial rival of John Turner, the first notable potter in the Turner family.

In 1833 William Taylor Copeland, William Copeland’s son acquired the business in partnership with Thomas Garrett. The factory’s productions from this period were marked ‘Copeland and Garrett.’ Typical wares produced during the Copeland and Garrett period were in the rococo style, which was fashionable then. In 1846, William Taylor Copeland acquired the company outright, and he and four generations of his descendants controlled the company until 1966. William Taylor Copeland was a classic Victorian industrialist, combining ownership of the factory with a career in politics and public life – as a member of Parliament. Under the Copelands, the factory vied with Minton in making some of the most spectacular ceramics wares of the age. Gifted artists, such as C. F. Hurten, were imported from continental factories, and superb pieces were exhibited at the Great Exhibition of London in 1851, International Exhibitions in London in 1862, and Paris in 1878.
