Here is a wonderful example of the verve and decorative flair of the early nineteenth-century porcelain makers—or in this case bone china manufacturers—across the pond in England. There were literally thousands of patterns created in this Chinoiseries style—adaptations of Asian porcelain created to suit the British taste. Imari colors traditionally included cobalt blue and iron red, but some European-style gilding was usually added for sparkle! There’s a label on the back of the saucer identifying this set as Coalport, but it is in fact Spode, in their pattern 1956. The saucer is five and a half inches across. Condition is great, with only slight surface wear from normal use.
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.
