A Coalport porcelain dessert plate hand painted with a bright and bold Imari style Japan pattern in under-glaze blue with pink peach and iron red enamel with dots of green and blue and gilding. The pattern is based around a central blue vase or bough pot with large highly stylised peonies with the rest of the plate covered in other stylised flowers and leaves. This plate is made in a pattern that was first introduced in the early 19th century circa 1810 during the Regency period of George III reign when Japanese patterns and styles were popular.

It was made by company of John Rose and Co of Coalport, Shropshire England . There is no pattern number on this item it may possibly have been made to replace a broken item from an earlier service.
