DESCRIPTION
PRICE

A Davenport sucrier or sugar box in a rare octagonal shape. The sucrier is decorated with hand painted floral sprays reserved against an under-glaze blue ground. The sucrier has a browny-red printed Davenport mark and is marked with the pattern number 745. The sucrier dates to c.1820-5. This type of shape is very difficult to fire successfully and there is some firing distortion present.

The sucrier is in good condition. There are two short hairlines from firing flaws in two of the corners, no other damage or restoration. The glaze is finely crazed. The gilding is good with a little wear, as illustrated. There are some firing distortions – the centres of the two large flat sides belly inwards, there is some distortion to the shape evident when looking down onto the rim of the base, there is a small firing crack part way through one of the handles. The underglaze blue ran a little, as can be seen from the images, and the blue band between the gilt lines is not an even depth. There is a little loss of enamel on some of the leaves.

The sucrier is 6.2 inches over handles and is 5.2 inches tall.

Coalport Hand Painted Dessert Plate c.1820

A stunning John Rose Coalport dessert plate from the 1820s. The plate dates from the change to the bone china body. A Coalport collector informed me that the top quality poppy painted from the back is generally taken as the work of Stephen Lawerence – I am unable to comment on this.

Very good condition. There is no damage or restoration. There is minor stacking wear to the glaze in the well and a few small utensil marks on the enamel. The gilding is good with only minor wear, as illustrated. There is a small potting flaw under the gilding on the rim, as illustrated. There are a few other small flaws in the potting indicative of this transition period.

The plate is 9.4 inches in diameter.

In keeping with the practice of the time it is not signed.

The dish is 9.5 inches wide over the handle.

The dish is in very good condition. There is no damage or restoration. There is a little wear to the gilding on the rim, as illustrated. The border colour does not reproduce well in the images, the image taken with flash (top right) gives a good idea of the ground colour.
