John Rose Period Coalport Three Piece Wine Cooler, Japan Pattern

Presented for sale is a rare early 19th century (1800-1820) English John Rose period wine cooler from the Coalport factory. The wine cooler consists of three pieces, the bucket-form cooler, the removable collar, and the cover. It is decorated in one of their popular Japan or Imari patterns with deep cobalt underglaze blues and iron-red overglaze enamels stepped up with gilding.

The cooler is intact with all pieces original and is supported on lion paw feet mounted to a plinth base. The interior contains a cylindrical sleeve with a cold-water moat. The cover is decorated with a pineapple finial and covers the bottle, which is held stationary by the removable collar.

The Coalport factory was originally founded in the township of Coalport on the northern banks of the River Severn, which was linked by the eastern branch of the Shropshire Canal in the latter part of the 18th century. John Rose was apprenticed to Thomas Turner of Caughley and received his training at this earlier factory, later establishing the Coalport factory with a partner around 1795. Around 1814, after much hardship and near bankruptcy, John Rose purchased several smaller potteries including Caughley where he had started, Nantgarw and Swansea in South Wales, and the rival factory across the canal owned by his brother, Thomas Rose. He then consolidated everything into a more manageable factory at Coalport making it one of the greatest Potteries of its age. Production has continued and flourished to this day giving Coalport a distinguished reputation for quality and craftsmanship that has remained unsurpassed since its foundation.

The wine cooler is in excellent age appropriate condition with the following exceptions: some gilt and enamel wear consistent with age; staining to the base of the inner cylindrical sleeve, and restoration to the finial. It is a magnificent showpiece and a rarity for the collector of early English porcelain.

Size: 15" Height.
