Presented is this gorgeous, English antique porcelain, fish plate featuring, as handwritten on the back, a "common eel." I would have to disagree because the long, slender snake has been expertly hand painted with the artist adding raised detail on its underbelly, back and tail. The colors use for the spectacular 2 inch, scalloped border are rich and vibrant, corals, emerald greens and golden yellows. Three sections of the border are recessed and would be perfect for displaying and serving delectable oysters at a gala event! The plate measures 8.75 inches in diameter and is signed on the front by the most talented, artist. Reversed is a E.J.D. Bodley, Burslem, Staffordshire England, hallmark used between 1875 and 1892. Surrounding the Bodley hallmark is a trademark from Gilman Collamore & Co, once located on Union Square in New York. This stunning plate was exclusively sold at this high, upscale shop.
This hand painted and artist signed, English beauty is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or paint flakes.
