Pair Antique English Porcelain Dishes Made by Coalport, Circa 1825


This pair of dishes were hand-painted at Coalport in England in the early 19th century. The colors are fabulous; we see pink, purple, orange, blue, green, yellow, and turquoise. Flowers are everywhere; beautiful roses, forget-me-nots, chrysanthemums, a single tulip, and other flowers fill the dishes. The dishes were made circa 1825, but the flowers are painted in a style developed in the early 18th century at Meissen in Germany.

Background of Coalport Porcelain

In Shropshire, England, Coalport was a center of porcelain and pottery production beginning in 1795 when John Rose founded the Coalport Porcelain factory. The opening in 1792 of the Coalport Canal, which joins the River Severn at Coalport, had increased the site’s attractiveness, and from 1800 until a merger in 1814, two factories were operating, one on each side of the canal. Both factories made mostly tablewares with elaborate hand-painted overglaze decoration with floral subjects. In 1819 a merger with another factory brought molds and skilled staff from Nantgarw Porcelain and Swansea Porcelain to Coalport.
