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.

Chinese Export Armorial Porcelain Plate, Ca. 1750

A good mid 18th century example of Chinese artistry on porcelain made for a European royal family. The crest and shield have lions rampant that are usually associated with the British Isles. The body of the plate is very thinly potted showing the hand of a highly skilled artisan.
