Chelsea Exotic Porcelain Bird Plate Ca. 1755

England Ca. 1755

A striking English example from the early production of the Chelsea factory. A similar plate is illustrated in Godden’s “British Porcelain”, page 132, #136.

Price

$2400

Condition

Very good condition. There are small areas of enamel touch up, mostly to the green leaves. As I recall there is a consolidated line that I can't find with heavy magnification and very small repairs to the edge of the rim. The whole plate has been over sprayed and looks nearly new. Scattered glaze fissures.

Measurements

8 3/4" diameter

Next Piece

American Federal Dressing or Shaving Mirror, Ca. 1820

A fine high style example possibly made in Rhode Island in the first quarter of the 19th century. It is made from mahogany with pine and chestnut secondary woods. Curiously, it never had finials on the mirror supports.
