Set of Six Admiral Nelson Pattern Plates English Imari by Coalport Circa 1815$2,800.00
Why we love it: The intensity of the Imari colors and the fabulous pink spotted lion. This set of Coalport Admiral Nelson dishes was hand-painted in England during the Regency period circa 1815. To see the wonderful hand-painting, look, for example, at the difference between the lions in images #5 and #6. The plates are decorated in a traditional, vibrant Imari palette: richly gilded and painted in cobalt blue and iron red. The central scene shows a classic Imari image of a vase on a garden terrace. But, the decoration also offers us a whimsical pink lion and turquoise waterbirds. These were never seen in Japanese Imari (the pink lion is on the right side of each dish, and the green waterbirds are on the left side). The lion and the waterbirds are the distinguishing characteristics of the Coalport Admiral Nelson pattern.
Dimensions: 8.5″ in diameter x 1″ height

18th Century Italian Doccia Porcelain Dinner Service$4,000.00
A dinner service comprising six dinner dishes and six soup dishes made by the Doccia Porcelain Manufactory, circa 1750.
Italy was the site of Europe’s first porcelain production: in Florence between 1575 and 1587 under the patronage of Francesco I de’ Medici. The Doccia Porcelain Manufactory, founded nearly 200 years later, continued the tradition of Italian porcelain with a hard-paste body that was later glazed with a tin glaze. This dinner set is decorated with the al tulipano motif, a design that is one of the most prevalent in Doccia wares. The central flower is not a tulip but an interpretation of the peonies used in the Chinese Famille Rose porcelain.

The compotes’ feet and dishes’ rims are reticulated, further contributing to the set’s delicacy. The reticulated shape is known as the “Devon” shape. The most special feature of this service, however, are the meticulously rendered (and labeled) ornithological scenes, which point to a 19th-century spirit of scientific classification.

Set of 11 Early Spode Ironstone Imari Dessert Dishes Made circa 1815$1,650.00
A set of 11 Imari style ironstone dessert dishes, made by Spode circa 1815.
Josiah Spode II began producing stone china in 1813 as an alternative to porcelain. Stone china, also known as ironstone due to its hard and durable fabric, became famous for its porcelain-like greyish blue glaze and glassy surface. So popular was this new medium that Queen Charlotte purchased her own stone china service from Spode’s Portugal Street showroom. These dessert dishes are early examples of Spode Stone China; in 1822 the company introduced an improved body marketed as “New Stone,” and thereafter items were branded as such.
Dishes are marked with pattern number 2283 in iron red and feature the printed Spode Stone China mark in underglaze blue.
