Charles Bourne Porcelain Saucer Dish Hand Painted Pattern 208 Antique Georgian 1820
Antique Georgian Porcelain Saucer Dish Hand Painted Charles Bourne Pattern number 208 circa 1820
Here we have a lovely example of early English porcelain, dating from around 1820 and featuring beautifully painted pink roses and buds with gilded flower and leaves. This decoration sits between two deep cobalt blue bands that have been copiously gilded.
The plate is marked CB over 208 on the base. This mark is illustrated in Godden's encyclopaedia of British pottery and porcelain marks and he lists it as number 470 as being that of Charles Bourne of the Grosvenor Works, Fenton, Staffordshire Potteries, England. The factory operated from 1817 to 1830. I believe this shape and pattern dates to around 1820.
The plate measures 7 1/2 inches in diameter, 1 3/8 inches tall and weighs 295 grammes unpacked. The dish is in good antique condition - it has a chip with an associated small crack and another small crack probably caused by a plate hanger. Please see the images.
This is a great item for any collector of 19th Century English porcelain. Please take a look at my other antique items listed for sale this week.
