Coalport Admiral Nelson Pattern Oval Dish, England, circa 1810


WHY WE LOVE IT: the intensity of the Imari colors and the wonderful pink spotted lion.

This Coalport Admiral Nelson oval dish was hand painted in England during the Regency period circa 1810. It is decorated in a traditional, vibrant Imari palette. It is richly gilded and painted in cobalt blue and iron red. The central scene shows a traditional Imari image of a vase on a garden terrace. But, the border of the dish shows a whimsical pink lion and turquoise water birds, both of which were never seen in Japanese Imari (the pink lion is on the right side of the border the green waterbirds are on the left). These figures are the distinguishing characteristics of the Coalport Admiral Nelson pattern.

The versatility of this timeless pattern makes it a true design classic that finds its place in the traditional home as well as in a modern interior.

Several of the English porcelain manufacturers of the Regency period were inspired by the style of Japanese Imari wares. Coalport and Chamberlains Worcester in particular produced a number of Imari influenced patterns. The most popular of all was the “Admiral Nelson” pattern.
