Here is a listing that accompanies a couple of other “Coalport Scotland” listings I have, all taken from a large set. It includes a pair of beautiful plates displaying hand-painted scenes of the UK, and especially Scotland. They are nine and three-quarters inches in diameter and in perfect condition, with no wear to the decoration and no damage. I have a single matching Coalport bowl that fits nicely in the central gilded ring, but it is being sold separately. The views are named on the bottom: Louch Gill (Ireland), Narrow Water Castle (England), Loch Voel (Scotland), Bally Bunnian (Ireland), Loch an Eilein (Scotland) and Loch Awe (Scotland). They are exactly the same design as Spode pattern 1926, with landscape scenes and a gilded dentil border. They have stickers on the bottom from a Christie’s auction in New York where they were sold at some point in their past. There is no pattern number or maker’s mark, but the other pieces of the set have typical Coalport shapes from the third quarter of the nineteenth century. In that period Coalport often did not mark its products in any way. This was a time when painterly skill was highly esteemed on British porcelain, and the details of these views, which were taken from engravings or view books, bear witness to that artistic approach.
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.
