What a fabulous pattern! It was called "Blue Ball Japan" by the factory. Each blue ball has a different gilding design. This 10.25" porcelain soup plate has a gilded gadroon edge.

According to John Sandon, in his "Dictionary of Worcester Porcelain", the pattern was popular at Graingers around 1820-25. It was made during the Grainger, Lee & Co. period. A whole set of dinnerware is illustrated in that book on page 130. It is also shown on page 73. with a discussion of the pattern on page 74. The pattern number is 1472.

This piece is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, and no repairs. Surprisingly, there are no utensil marks.

The soup plate is marked only with the pattern number 1472, painted in red. Guaranteed to be Grainger, Lee & Co., "Blue Ball Japan" pattern, c 1825.

Note: we have a matching dinner plate available in our Ruby Lane shop.
