Coalport porcelain John Rose and Co. antique ornate shell shaped dessert dish floral fractional pattern number 4-478 gilded green ground circa 1835


A mid 19th century William IV period Coalport porcelain ornate shell shaped single handled dessert dish. It has been transfer printed and hand coloured, with a bright green ground on the lip which is further enhanced with ornate rococo scroll gilding. There are four polychrome enamel floral sprays in the white otherwise undecorated well of the dish. The outer edges of the lip of the dish has low relief moulding of acanthus leaf scrolls and the handle has three decorative pierced holes.

The dish is unmarked other than a decorator's painted mark and the fractional pattern number of 4 over 478. It was made by the company of John Rose and Co of Coalport, Shropshire England. Ref 1. A highly decorative and collectable item of mid 19th century William IV period Coalport porcelain circa 1835.

The dish is 9 1/2 inches ( 24.1 cm) long, 8 3/4 inches (22.2 cm ) wide and 2 1/4 inches ( 5.6 cm) high, it weighs 472 grammes unpacked. 

It is in very good antique condition, no chips, cracks nor restoration.  There are two scratches in the glaze on the well and a mark to the enamel on the lip near the handle, commensurate with age and use. Please see the images.
