Large Blue and White Greek Platter England circa 1810 Neoclassical Decoration$2,600.00
Spode made this fabulous platter circa 1810. It is decorated in the neoclassical “Greek” pattern with classical figures and mythological scenes based on ancient Greek and Roman art. It is large, measuring 20″ x 15.5″ x 1.75″ deep, and is perfect for hanging. The pattern shows a scene from Olympic history. At the center, we see Cynisca winning the four-horse chariot race at the Greek Olympic Games in 392 BC. She became the first woman to win at the Olympics.* The rectangular platter is printed in blue with leaf and berry ground, radiating medallions, and urns containing classical scenes. This was the first multi-scene pattern introduced at the Spode factory. The central image was taken from a 1791 collection of engravings from ancient vases of Greek workmanship discovered in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies purchased by Sir William Hamilton, a British envoy to Naples court. The platter is marked on the underside with the Spode mark in underglaze blue (see image #11).

The plate was made to serve cakes and other sweets. The colors are exquisite. A ring of hand-painted flowers fills the border encircling the crest and motto at the center of the plate.
The plate has wonderful provenance and motto.
In the center of the plate is the coat of arms of the Family of Colegrave. Its motto: Fidei Constans [Steadfast in Honour]
Given the date of the manufacture of this plate, it undoubtedly formed part of a more extensive suite of porcelain that was commissioned from Flight Barr and Barr Worcester by William Colegrave (born 24th February 1788 of Downsell Hall and Cann Hall in the County of Essex). William became the eventual heir to his uncle, John Manby.
He then assumed the surname and arms of Colegrave by Royal Licence dated 16th February 1819.

barbed and flighted argent banded by mural crown gules
