Four Antique English Porcelain Shell Shaped Dishes Made Circa 1810


WHY WE LOVE IT: The founder of Bardith, Edith Wolf, always said, “Miles Mason never made a piece of porcelain that wasn’t beautiful.”
This group of four shell-shaped dishes was made in the Regency period, circa 1810. Like many of Miles Mason’s best designs, this pattern has flair. It is one of his finest patterns. The two pairs of dishes are fully painted with pink and orange flowers with green leaves. The unexpected combination of pink with orange highlighted with green makes this a gorgeous pattern.
Placed in a cabinet or on a wall, these dishes will make an entire room come alive.

Background of Miles Mason

In 1796 Miles Mason entered into a partnership with the experienced porcelain manufacturer Thomas Wolfe of Liverpool. He partnered with George Wolfe at the Victoria Works in Lane Delph in the same year, producing fine earthenware. Miles thus assured himself of a continuous supply of earthenware and porcelain for his retail porcelain and pottery business in London. Both of these partnerships ceased in 1800. Miles kept the Victoria Works for himself and produced porcelain until 1813. He retired from business in June 1813.
