Presented for sale is a stunning early 19th century (1806-1825) English Derby plate in a "Japan" pattern. The plate is painted in underglaze cobalt vines and leaves and overglaze iron reds, all highly embellished with gilt.
Andrew Planche and William Duesbury founded the Derby Factory in 1750. They quickly became established as one of the premiere manufacturers of high quality china in England. Their products were so esteemed that they were awarded royal warrants by King George III and Queen Victoria, thus eventually becoming The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company. Vibrant colors and intricate gilding remain the distinguishing features of Royal Crown Derby. Their earlier Imari patterns are some of the most highly collected china in the world.
The plate is in excellent condition with minor to no gilt or enamel wear. Size: 8".
