A beautiful example of a "Warren Hastings" type Chelsea porcelain plate, molded with a rococo style border reserved with three scroll-edged panels painted with landscapes including a lake, distant towers, woods and figures. There are mixed flower sprays, smaller sprigs and a butterfly in the center, with the rim picked out with a brownish red line. Red anchor mark and stilt marks on the reverse. Painted in a lovely soft palette.
The plate is 9 1/2" in diameter. Condition is excellent, with no chips, cracks, or restoration. There is a normal and common glaze separation inside the foot rim. Even the brownish red rim, which is very often well worn, has extremely few, light and minuscule losses.
