Coalport Tureen, Indian Tree Pattern in Orange, Yellow and Green
We’re offering this old and very beautiful Coalport tureen, an oblong covered dish with sculpted handles at either end and on the lid. It stands on four sculpted feet. The pattern is Coalport’s Indian Tree. The décor mixes printed tree trunks and branches in black and gray with hand painted flowers of bright yellow and orange enamel. The ground is a pale cream color, best represented in the first and third photos. There are green linear highlights on all three handles, the four feet, and the inner border of the lid, which are also hand painted.
Underside of bowl bears mark, Coalport over a crown with England, A.D. 1750; Kings Ware appears on a banner below. This mark signifies that the piece was made by the Coalport Porcelain Works at Coalport, Shropshire between 1891 and 1920 (The Potteries online & Godden p. 157). There are tiny decorator’s numbers in orange paint on underside of bowl and inside of lid, arranged in diamond shapes. Tureen measures 11 3/8” long x 7 ¼” wide x 7" tall.
There is very fine crazing under the glaze to both pieces, inside and out, and some discoloration to the inside of bowl. There's a bit of yellowing of the surface glaze in some crevices. There are a few flecks of stray paint and one freckle on underside of lid handle, all from the manufacturing. A small area of the printed band on lid is lighter than adjacent area (photo 4). The bit of rubbing to rim is normal with age (photo 3). - We have tried to err on the side of thoroughness here. There is no damage to this gorgeous piece -- no cracks, scratches, or chips, and no repairs.
This tureen displays beautifully, and we know you will enjoy having it in your collection.
