Eight Blue and White Coalport Chrysanthemum Dishes and a Platter


From the Collection of Mario Buatta
We are pleased to offer this fine quality set of Coalport porcelain blue and white dishes together with a single earthenware serving platter. Mario loved blue and white, and he filled his home with blue and white porcelains. This early 19th century (circa 1810), English pattern was inspired by similar Chinese patterns of the 18th century. The crisp white English porcelain allows the white flowers to stand out against the deep blue background. The blue and white is accented perfectly by the rich gilding on the rim of each dish.

Dimensions: Dm 9.25 in.  (dishes), L 14.75 in. x W 11.75 in. (platter)

Condition: Excellent.

Background of Coalport Porcelain

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, circa 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.

From Mario’s collection we also have a large platter and a small tureen in this pattern. Together they would make a stunning tablescape!
