Description

DERBY PORCELAIN (ROBERT BLOOR PERIOD) CENTERPIECE DISH ON FOOT, the large basket of rounded, rectangular form with lightly-pinched waist and sides, the cerule-form handles applied to the sides, the body press-molded in low relief with lion's heads to each corner and scrolls alternating with foliate wreathes to the inner border, with gilt line rims to edge and to handles, painted with sprig pattern, also known as Bourbon Sprig or Angouleme Sprig, with cornflowers and leaves on stems, scattered on the body and undersides, iron-red crown, crossed batons, dots and D. Circa 1810-1850. 4" H, 11 1/2" W, 9" D.

Provenance: Property of a North Carolina Collector.

Condition

Overall very good condition: Bloor Derby porcelains often have crazed glazing due to the poor state of the factory during the period of Bloor's confinement during his mental illness and bad financial management. This centerpiece is actually better than most, with lightly-crazed glazing mostly within one area of the center well area. There is light staining and frit toward the sides, and some gilding wear, as well as some typical abrasion to the sprig at the bottom well of the centerpiece.
