Here is an antique porcelain plaque painted by master artist James Rouse, Sr., with glorious flowers, set off by a gilded frame. James Rouse was born in Derby and worked there painting flowers, but was painting at the Coalport factory by 1833 and continued into the 1860s. Three of his sons—William, James and Edward—also painted porcelain for Coalport. His works for Coalport are never signed, but there is a helpful slip of paper glued to the back of this plaque indicating that it indeed painted by Rouse, and the work is certainly in his style. Flowers include several roses, a spray of lilac (with wonderful gradations of tone), a variegated tulip, poppy and primrose, among others. The overall size of the frame is fourteen and a quarter by twelve and three-quarter inches, and the visible plaque is six and a half inches by eight and a quarter inches. Condition is excellent. The plaque is in perfect condition and the frame a bit dull and one small chip on the edge has been well repaired. It presents beautifully.

A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
