Coalport Porcelain Dulong Moulded Dessert Plate Painted Flowers Antique
A very collectable and decorative Georgian dulong moulded dessert plate by Coalport, from the John Rose period circa 1820, one of the premier makers of English porcelain This 8 3/4 inches diameter plate made of bone china, it is unmarked as is often the case with items dating from this period. The white plate has the low relief moulded Du long pattern with a beautifully hand painted design of floral sprays, one of Coalport's most distinctive designs of the regency period. The moulding copied the Meissen designs of the 18th century.
The plate has some damage with two rivets through a crack from the rim. There are also some hairline star cracks to the base and a tiny chip at the rim. The rim has been painted but there are only traces of this remaining, due to age and use. It weighs 339g. Despite the damage, the plate displays well and would make a great addition to any collection of early English porcelain or John Rose Coalport bone china.
