This 9-1/4" transferware porcelain plate was printed in a very dark blue 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. This plate bears Coalport's distinctive impressed numeral "2", which is Godden's mark 944. That mark was used c 1815-25, and this plate dates during that period.
The plate is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing and no repairs. There are utensil marks which can be seen in glancing light. There is a skip in the application of the central border transfer which was done at the factory. The plate rings like a bell when tapped.
I also have a matching sugar box available.
