Collection of Mario Buatta a Pair of BFB Worcester Tobacco Leaf Dishes 1807-1813


Provenance: The Private Collection of Mario Buatta
A pair of Barr, Flight, Barr Worcester Tobacco Leaf pattern hand-painted porcelain dishes made in England 1807-1813. The plates are exquisite!
Mario loved well-painted flowers on porcelain. He also loved unexpected color combinations. These Tobacco Leaf pattern dishes have both.
We are proud to offer these “Tobacco Leaf” pattern plates with a fabulous design originally made in China in the 18th century circa 1770. The decoration was inspired by the flowering Nicotiana (Tobacco) plant and patterns used on 17th and 18th-century Chinese damask fabrics, which feature similar lobed leaves and hibiscus style flowers. Worcester’s crisp white porcelain makes the colors stand out.
On the reverse is imprinted BFB under a crown.
The Tobacco Leaf pattern was and still is one of the most sought after of porcelain patterns.

Dimensions: 7″ diameter

Condition: Excellent with very light scratches to the enamels
