Coalport John Rose Porcelain Plate, White Floral Dulong Blind-Moulded circa 1815

US$295

About

This is a beautiful dessert plate made by Coalport in circa 1815. Coalport was one of the leading potters in 19th and 20th century Staffordshire. They worked alongside other great potters such as Spode, Davenport and Minton, and came out with many innovative designs. When we say "Coalport" we usually think of the one Coalport factory that became famous, but in its beginning years there were two factories, one run by John Rose and the other by his brother Thomas Rose. Thomas Rose went into partnership with Robert Anstice and Robert Horton and they were located directly opposite John Rose, across the canal. The brothers' factories had much in common with each other and they shared many different shapes and patterns. Ultimately, the John Rose factory proved more profitable and John Rose bought Thomas' factory in 1814, making it the one Coalport factory that became so famous. Many of the Coalport items, of either factory, are now collectors' items. This plate would have belonged to a large dessert service. It was very lightly potted in the famous "Dulong" moulding that was popular between 1805 and 1820. This pattern was an imitation of a famous Meissen pattern from 1743, which was made to the order of Dutch merchants, Godefroy and Dulong, circa 1800 this pattern came to England, where Caughley, Coalport and Grainger Worcester took it up for their porcelains. We know from the fine detail that this is a Coalport version of this beautiful moulding. The plate is further decorated with slightly naive, cheerful hand painted flowers, and it bears a brown rim rather than gilt - this might mean that it was made for Puritan (Protestant Christian) customers, who would not eat from gilt because of their religious beliefs. This type of white moulded surface is often called "blind-moulded". Condition report: The plate is in excellent condition without any structural damage or repairs. It has a few crazing lines in the glaze right next to the flower detail in the centre of the plate and there are a few flakes off the colored flower petals, as visible in the picture. Other than this, the plate is fabulously preserved and it rings well when tapped. The plate is unmarked, as was common at the time. Antique British porcelain is never perfect. Kilns were fired on coal in the 1800s, and this meant that china from that period can have some firing specks from flying particles. British makers were also known for their experimentation, and sometimes this resulted in technically imperfect results. Due to the shrinkage in the kiln, items can have small firing lines or develop crazing over time, which should not be seen as damage but as an imperfection of the maker's recipes, probably unknown at the time of making. Items have often been used for many years and can have normal signs of wear, and gilt can have signs of slight disintegration even if never handled. I will reflect any damage, repairs, obvious stress marks, crazing or heavy wear in the item description but some minor scratches, nicks, stains and gilt disintegration can be normal for vintage items and need to be taken into account. There is widespread confusion on the internet about the difference between chips and nicks, or hairlines and cracks. I will reflect any damage as truthfully as I can, i.e. a nick is a tiny bit of damage smaller than 1mm and a chip is something you can easily see with the eye; a glazing line is a break in the glazing only; hairline is extremely tight and/or superficial and not picked up by the finger; and a crack is obvious both to the eye and the finger. Dimensions: (diameter) 22.5cm (8.9"), height 2cm (0.75").
