John Rose Coalport Plates, Set of 8, Dark Blue Chinoiserie, "Curly Pagodas", Antique c 1820
These attractive small (6-12") plates are in a very dark blue and printed in the pattern known as "Curly Pagodas" or "House Boat". The border pattern is called "Trellis Diaper".
Michael Messenger discusses and illustrates the pattern on page 65 of his "Coalport" book. He credits the first use of the pattern to Thomas Turner of the Caughley Works.
All 8 plates are in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing and no repairs. Each plate rings when tapped.
These plates are unmarked. However, other pieces of this partial set bear Coalport's distinctive impressed numeral "2". That mark was used c 1815-25.
The price listed is for the set of 8.
