Dessert Service Coalport Porcelain Hand Painted 32 Pieces England Circa 1810
This exquisite Blue Chrysanthemum hand painted Coalport pattern combines deep blue with the allure of gold. It’s a fabulous combination! The golden chrysanthemum leaves are richly gilded, creating a beautiful contrast against the deep blue background. The 32-piece service consists of 21 dessert plates and all the serving shapes: a centerpiece and pairs of square-shaped dishes, shell-shaped dishes, oval-shaped dishes, and a fabulous pair of sauce tureens with their underplates.
Made by Coalport in England circa 1810, this Regency Period pattern was inspired by similar Chinese designs of the 18th century. In Chinese lore, chrysanthemums represent a long and happy life because they bloom at the end of summer. So, in addition to their beauty, these dishes symbolize happiness and overall well-being.

Background of Early Coalport Porcelain:
In Shropshire, England, Coalport was already a center of porcelain and pottery production in 1795 when John Rose founded the Coalport Porcelain factory. Opened in 1792, the Coalport Canal, which joins the River Severn at Coalport, had increased the site’s attractiveness. From 1800 until a merger in 1814, two Coalport factories were operating, one on each side of the canal. Both factories made mostly tablewares with elaborate hand-painted overglaze decoration.
