A high quality hand painted and gilded dessert plate dating from around 1825 - 1830 possibly by Grainger Worcester .
A highly decorative and attractive antique bone china porcelain plate dating from the late Georgian / William IV period. There are no marks to identify a maker but it is possibly by Worcester or perhaps Ridgway. The plate is 8 1/2 inches in diameter and is opulently decorated with a central pink rose and a wide border of floral sprays alternating with gilded fern like foliage and puce and pale blue coloured stylised fuchsia type flowers or cornucopia. There are under glaze blue bands at the rim and around the central motif, with a gilded grapevine design.
The plate is 8 1/2 inches in diameter and weighs 382g. It is in very good condition with a tiny frit mark near the centre and a tiny unglazed section on the footrim, both dating from manufacture. There is minor rubbing to the gilded ferns.
This is a great item to add to any collection on antique English porcelain and a very decorative display piece.
