Antique Porcelain Leaf Shaped Pin Dish William Adams circa 1835 Painted Roses

A  beautifully hand painted (c 1835 - 40) porcelain pin or sweetmeat dish with a leaf shape and made by the renowned Staffordshire factory of William Adams and Sons of the Greenfield Pottery, Tunstall near Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, England. This William Adams IV (1798-1865)

The pin dish can be positively identified as being by Adams by the large impressed anchor mark with two laurel sprigs, used by Adams around this period. It has a bright green ground border with a scalloped gilded rim and elaborate white gilded scrolls at the handle. The central section has a hand gilded border and a beautifully executed hand painted floral bouquet featuring pink roses and foliage. 

Please see the images of the mark showing the translucency of the porcelain and also an extract from the excellent book by Charles Duckworth "Davenport Ceramic Marks 1794 - 1887".  

The dish measures 6 1/4 inches by 5 1/4 inches and weighs 162 g. 

It is in very good condition with just a few tiny scratches to the green ground and some rubbing to the gilding, commensurate with age and use. The dish is a great example of English porcelain from the William IV to early Victorian period and would make a very decorative addition to any collection.
