An H & R Daniel porcelain cake or bread and butter plate neatly and very skillfully hand painted in the highly sought after 4347 pattern and made in the second gadrooned shape circa 1827. This rare, beautiful quality and highly collectable cabinet type plate is unmarked, although we have seen recorded specimens that are marked with the pattern number 4347. This pattern on tea-ware that combines both landscape scenes, flower decoration and intricate gilding and would have been very expensive at the time to manufacture.
