ENGLISH DELFT MANGANESE & BLUE “WOOLSACK” CHARGER

 

 

The large charger painted in manganese-purple and blue, the powdered-manganese-ground rim with a brown-red edge

and reserved with 6 maple leaves and 6 "lotus-form" tassels delineated in blue, the central reserve a "tufted woolsack"*,

also delineated in blue and depicting a Chinese figure seated beneath a whimsical flowering "lotus" issuing further floral sprays,

the verso with three blue ribbons
 
Condition : Excellent condition, with a few very minor rim nicks;
some slight lackof sharpness to part of the interior blue decoration
; impressive condition and size
 
Provenance: Garry Atkins, London, March 1993
 
*"Woolsack" refers to a sack containing wool, as well as the official seat of the Lord Chancellor in the House of Lords.
While some are of a square tufted form, this 6-tufted version is also somewhat reminiscent of lotus reserves on Chinese porcelain.

 
Ref : A plate painted with a similar view and rim panels is illustrated in Archer, p. 146, n. B.63.
The author notes that the "nearest parallel to the leaves and flowers in the centre is provided by fragments from Liverpool."
For "Woolsack" plates, see Frank Britton, English Delft in the Bristol Collection, p. 241, figs 15.16 & 15.17.
