18th Century Worcester Porcelain Plate Blue and White Bandstand Pattern English Circa 1780
A wonderful example of an early Worcester small plate or saucer in the chinoiserie transfer printed “Bandstand Pattern”. This saucer was produced by the Worcester porcelain factory in England towards the end of the 18th century circa 1780. The base of the saucer is fully marked with the standard pseudo Chinese number “5” mark. These pseudo Chinese marks were used by Worcester at this period of production and range from 1-9.
Measuring: Diameter 4.75” (12 cm). Height 1” (2.5 cm).
This 200 year old plus saucer is in very good condition for its vast age. The underglaze blue design is crisp and in very good condition. There is some kiln dust in the glaze which gives the feel and appearance of orange peel on the face and base of the saucer. Minor manufacturing issues like this are common on very early pieces of porcelain. There are two minor flea bite chips to the foot rim of the saucer.
This is an excellent 18th century addition to any blue and white or Worcester porcelain collection. Please view our other 18th century porcelain, engravings and textiles...it is our favorite period for antiques and history.
