Antique Georgian Derby Porcelain Plate Rose Border English Circa 1810
This fine decorative Georgian porcelain plate was produced by Derby in England at the beginning of the 19th century, circa 1800-1810. The plate is finely potted and features a very pretty border of Billingsley Roses along with other colourful assorted flowers and leafs. To the base of the plate we find the usual red Derby crossed swords mark and two painter’s numbers 65 and 66.
Measuring: Diameter 8 5/8” (22 cm). Height 1 1/8” (2.5 cm).
This plate is in very good condition for its vast age. The hand painted design is crisp and bright, as is the gilding. The three small dots on the face of the plate are stilt marks from where the plate was stacked in the kiln. There is firing fault to the foot rim in the form of a horizontal clean crack 0.5”, very minor. There is also a 0.5” line in the glaze to the base of the plate, this is not a crack and is only in the surface of the glaze.
This is an attractive plate from a top quality English factory, it is an excellent example of a piece of porcelain from this early 19th century period.
