Coalbrookdale Porcelain Floral Encrusted Basket John Rose Coalport Antique 1820
A marked Coalbrookdale porcelain early 19th century antique floral encrusted basket, marked on the base in under-glaze cobalt blue in a scrolling script "CD". This Coalport flower-encrusted porcelain basket in the typical "Coalbrookdale" style, the interior finely painted and gilded with summer flowers, the exterior with a cobalt blue ground and gilt decoration.
It was made by John Rose and Co. of Coalport,Shropshire, England circa 1820. This beautifully decorative basket was made around the end of the Regency period when the Prince Regent or King George IV was on the throne towards the end of the Georgian era.
This beautiful antique porcelain basket is in good antique condition. There is a piece broken and glued to one end with a small piece lost, some of the inevitable chips and losses to the floral encrustation. The handle has been broken in three pieces and glued. No other chips, cracks nor restoration. Still displays beautifully.
This is a great antique item to add to any collection of antique porcelain floral encrusted ware, marked Coalbrookdale China, English porcelain or John Rose Coalport items.
