Davenport Soup Plate, Armorial, Cobalt & Gold, Antique 19th C English Porcelain

This gorgeous large porcelain soup plate by Davenport looks as if it were made yesterday instead of 180 years ago. It is decorated with a beautiful flowing cobalt blue, heavy gilding and an array of flowers. The family crest is of a rock with the motto "Stat Veritas" (which translates as: "Truth Endures").

The bowl measures a bit over 10" (26 cm) in diameter. It is in excellent condition. No chips, no cracks, no crazing, no wear to the gilding, no repairs. It rings like a bell when tapped, and is very translucent.

The mark on the back is Godden's mark 1191 in gold or light brown. It was hard to photograph. Mr. Godden says, "On pre-1830 pieces the mark is in black or colours other than blue". The pattern number is 668 hand painted in red. These clues seem to point to c.1825 for this piece.
