FIRST PERIOD WORCESTER POWDER BLUE SHAPED PLATE
The shaped plate centering a roundel painted with a Chinese riverscape,
depicting a Chinese man in a boat before a house, rocks,
and two pagodas, below birds in the sky, the rim with three fan shaped
panels of further fishing scenes alternating with roundels
of flowerheads, against a powder blue ground, the verso with underglaze
blue sprigs and mock Chinese characters
Worcester introduced this Chinese method of
painting c1760, which was produced by blowing dry cobalt thought a tube with
screen on the end onto an oiled ground, the panels
being masked for painting. It produced a much softer and more interesting
ground than the previous “wet blue”, the mottling
having a fine texture. The earliest used, as did Bow, Chinese fishing
in the central roundel as well as the rim
reserves. Mock Oriental marks were used c1760-70.
