Presented for sale is a rare pair William and John Turner porcelain plates in the Japonaise manner, circa 1795, decorated with stylized dragon dogs leaping amidst flora over a bridge. The plates are painted in underglaze cobalt blues and overglaze iron red enamels highlighted in gilt.

John Turner (1738 – 1887) established his Staffordshire pottery in 1762 and produced fine wares similar to Japanese porcelain. He became the designated potter for the Prince of Wales and his sons, William and John continued his work after his death. The Turners produced high quality wares rivaling those of Josiah Wedgwood. Due to the company's bankruptcy, through a series of unfortunate events, they finally sold their patents to Josiah Spode, II in 1805. Turner's wares are showcased in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The plates are in immaculate condition with minor gilt wear mainly to the edge commensurate with age.

Size: 8" Diameter.
