Pair of First Period Worcester “Brocade” Pattern Dishes

$2,600.00

Known as the “Brocade” pattern, the design on these exquisite eighteenth-century dishes is complicated yet delicate. The inspiration for this pattern comes from seventeenth-century Japanese patterns. We see dragons, flowering prunus, and bolts of fabric with mons. The center has a sizeable gilt chrysanthemum flower head, and the border has a golden rim line with a lobed edge.
Made by Worcester during the “First Period” when the factory was under the supervision of Dr. Wall circa 1770.
The reverse of each dish with the Worcester gold crescent mark.
Several years ago, we had in the shop a single dish in this model with the collection label for the Iman Smallwood Collection.
Also see: Simon Spero and John Sandon in Worcester Porcelain, 1751-1790, The Zorensky Collection image #273 pg. 234 for an example of this pattern in a shell-shaped dish.
Diameter: 8.25.”
Condition: Excellent
Price: $2600 for the pair
