Set Four Antique Dinner Plates England Early 19th Century

We are pleased to offer this set of four antique dinner plates made by Coalport n England circa 1820. The style of these plates shows a strong influence by the French royal factory, Sèvres*. The dishes resemble the 18th-century Sèvres choux pattern enhanced by royal blue accents. The four plates feature delicately painted sprays of summer flowers on white porcelain ground. The floral sprigs are placed in the center of each dish and around the dishes’ edge. While the design resembles the 18th-century French “choux” pattern, the rich gold gadrooned edge is found on the finest English porcelain.                   Dimensions: 10.25 inches diameter x 1 1/8 inches height        Condition: Excellent                Price for the four dinner dishes: $700

Background of Sèvres:

Sèvres was the factory of the King of France. It was known for making the very finest porcelains in France. Background of Coalport 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 since about 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, and Billingsley’s chemist, Walker, who brought the Nantgarw technical recipes to Coalport.
