FINE FIRST PERIOD WORCESTER SCALLOPED DEEP PLATE

"Sir Joshua Reynolds Pattern"

England, c1770-72

 

Fine First Period Worcester "Sir Joshua Reynolds" Pattern Plate, c1770-72

 

The scalloped deep plate inspired by 17th century Japanese Kakiemon palette and design,

depicting a colorful long-tailed pheasant perched on a turquoise hollow rock

sided by a blue branch issuing turquoise leaves and bright yellow and iron red flowers,

all above grass represented by turquoise brush strokes and tiny iron red flowers;
within a "wet blue" lobed ground, with quite fine gilding of leaf sprays alternating with trellis diapering

 

Conditon : Excellent, with only very minor scratches to the enamels;

gilt in remarkable condition, and apparently very well care for;

expected light "mottling" to the wet blue ground under strong light; appropriate footrim wear

 

Notes :
This Kakeimon design used at Worcester from the 1750s,

a related design appearing on Chelsea, ane a further version appearing on Vauxhalls porcelains.
The pattern appears in three different forms :
on lobed plates and teawares, c1765,
with plain ground within a brown rim;
within an underglaze wet blue rim;

and within panels divided by deep underglaze blue bands.

 

The connection between this pattern and Sir Joshua Reynolds is unclear,

although tradition holds that a set of the pattern belonged to

the well known British 18th century painter, Sir Joshua Reynolds.
