19th Century Coalport Soup Bowls Set of 4

$920.00

Description

Set of four antique Coalport porcelain soup bowls dating ca. 1820. The style of these soup dishes shows a strong influence by the French royal factory, Sèvres. The dishes resemble the 18th century Sèvres chou pattern enhanced by royal blue accents. The four soup dishes feature delicately painted sprays of summer flowers on a white porcelain ground. The floral sprigs are placed in the center of each dish and around the dishes’ edge. While the design resembles the 18th century French chou pattern, the rich gold gadrooned edge is found on the finest English porcelain.

We also have a set of 4 dinner plates in this pattern.

History

The Coalport porcelain manufactory was founded by John Rose in 1795. Rose had trained at the Caughley porcelain manufactory in Shropshire and had been making his own pottery nearby at Jackfield since about 1780. His rapid success enabled him to buy the Caughley manufactory in 1799, the Nantgarw porcelain manufactory in 1819 and the Swansea porcelain manufactory, with their repertory of molds. He employed the talented William Billingsley, formerly at Nantgarw, as chief painter, and Billingsley’s chemist, Walker, who initiated at Coalport a maroon glaze and brought the Nantgarw technical recipes to Coalport.
