This unusual dessert dish from London's Bow porcelain manufactory is molded in the shape of a cabbage leaf with a border of green and yellow, puce veins arching out from the center vein, and having a bouquet of somewhat unusual flowers in the center, all in a wonderful state of preservation. It is nine and seven-eighths inches long. The colorful decoration is in super condition, with only slight wear. It bears the anchor and dagger marks, which some say is an indication that the white porcelain was purchased by James Giles to be decorated in his independent London workshop. The back preserves an auction catalog entry that refers to this dish but the source is unknown. The original handle seems to have been reglued professionally. It looks perfect.
