English Cream Ware “The Prodigal Son” Plate

England/Holland Ca. 1780

An English Cream Ware plate with the decoration done in Holland. The subject is from a series of scenes that tell the story of the Prodigal Son. This one translates as “In Misery”. The decoration is all over the glaze and very colorful. I find this one humorous as I look at the pigs.

Matched Pair of Derby Regency Porcelain Potpourri, Ca. 1825

A near pair by the same maker. They are English semi-porcelain not true porcelain as is most early English production. Gilded pineapple finials, Satyr’s masks, hand painted scenic decoration, lion’s paw feet and other gilded highlights on a “Warwick Vase” form. All these designs were popular during the Regency period.
