Offered is a wonderful Derby English porcelain dessert dish in lozenge shape, a form used by Derby since the 1770s. This item would date from about 1810 to 1820. The decoration is a sprig pattern Derby commonly used and is highlighted by early burnished mercury gilding, On the back it bears the red triple baton mark used by Derby from about 1800 to 1825. Simple but elegant.
Size: 8.5" X 11"
Condition: Excellent. Nice smooth glaze and feel that Derby porcelain from this period was known for. No chips, cracks, surface wear, or repairs. Slight wear to gilding mostly on rim.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing defect or repair. While this is normal and to be expected I note any known issues in the condition descriptions.
