Coalport Porcelain Cake Plate Red Flower and Gilt Leaves c 1815 Antique
A Coalport porcelain cake or sandwich plate with six small indents around the rim. It is hand painted with iron red enamel flowers or leaves and gilt stems in a border pattern with a central gilded band and rim. It was probably from a tea service produced by John Rose and company circa 1815.
Coalport is one of the premier makers of English porcelain. This is a very collectable and decorative Georgian era plate from the Regency period. It is unmarked as is often the case with items dating from this period, although this pattern is recognised as of Coalport production.
It is in very good antique condition, a short crack to the rim and hairline to the glaze on the rear of the plate. Some minor rubbing to the gilding. No chips nor restoration.
It would make a great addition to any collection of early English porcelain or John Rose Coalport bone china.
