Set Antique Porcelain Dishes in Coalport's Red Chrysanthemum Pattern circa 1810

US$15,915per set

About

We are pleased to offer this set of 12 antique porcelain dishes painted in Coalport's "Red Chrysanthemum" pattern, England, circa 1810. The dishes are covered with exquisite red chrysanthemums and gilded leaves in a swirling ornamental pattern (see image #2). This early 19th century, English pattern was inspired by similar Chinese patterns of the 18th century. In Chinese lore, chrysanthemums represent a happy life. Having chrysanthemums was also thought to prolong life. Therefore, these dishes have a benevolent motif of happiness and well-being. The rim of each dish has rich golden English gilding. The body of the Coalport porcelain is whiter than the Chinese porcelain, which creates a striking contrast with the red flowers. This group would be wonderful in a cabinet or arranged on a wall. The set comprises:; -3 square dishes, a pair and a single dish: $750 each, L 7.75 in. x W 7.75 in. x H 1.88 in. -rectangular serving dish: $400, L 9.5 in. x W 8.25 in. x H 1.88 in. -3 pairs of oval dishes (6 total): $980 per pair, L 11 in. x W 7.5 in. x H 1.75 in. -3 shell shaped dishes, a pair and a single: $750 each, L 8 in. x W 7.75 in. x H 1.88 in. -a fruit compote: $1,500, L 12.25 in. x W 8.25 in. x H 2.88 in.

(24 pieces) $15,915 for the complete set. Condition: Excellent Background of Coalport: The Coalport Porcelain manufactory was founded by John Rose in 1795. Rose had trained at the Caughley Porcelain manufactory in Shropshire and had been making his own pottery nearby at Jackfield since about 1780. His rapid success enabled him to buy the Caughley manufactory in 1799, the Nantgarw porcelain manufactory in 1819 and the Swansea Porcelain manufactory, with their repertory of molds. He employed the talented William Billingsley, formerly at Nantgarw, as chief painter, and Billingsley’s chemist, Walker, who initiated at Coalport a maroon glaze and brought the Nantgarw technical recipes to Coalport. History of Crysanthemums: In both the East and the West, chrysanthemums are a symbol of the autumn. Chrysanthemums entered American horticulture in 1798 when Colonel John Stevens imported a cultivated variety known as 'Dark Purple' from England. The introduction was part of an effort to grow attractions within Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey, one of the earliest American parks to be developed in the English landscape garden style. For half a century, until the opening of Central Park in the early 1860s, the Hoboken park was legendary as one of the most popular outdoor recreation places in the New York metropolitan area.
