Object Detail


Description
Savoury dish, flower pattern with gilt edge, moulded pecten shell shape with fluted edge and thumb piece in the form of a shell, hand-enamelled with naturalistic flowers painted separately or loosely tied in bouquets, after the Meissen “Deutsche Blumen” style introduced circa 1740.
This dish shows the characteristic style of John Rose, Coalport with the “escaping tulip” in the central spray. The rim is gilded and the thumb piece gilded in the form of a pecten shell. Barrett suggests the painting was executed by a London decorator who also painted Nantgarw porcelain.
