We would like to present a 1790 Caughley ware porcelain cake or bread and butter plate in the “new fluted" or shanked form. The plate is decorated with an underglaze cobalt stripe festooned in a feathering of honey-colored gilded leaves.
Ambrose Gallimore and Thomas Turner founded the Caughley Porcelain Factory around 1775 in Shropshire, England. They proceeded to produce some of the finest soft-paste porcelain made in England in the 18th century. Their focus was on well-potted tablewares that could be purchased and bought by the burgeoning middle class emerging in Great Britain by the end of the century. Caughley Porcelain is highly desirable and sought after by ceramic collectors.
The plate is rare and in excellent age related condition, as beautiful today as when it was potted over 200 years ago.
Size: 8 1/2" Diameter
