An uncommon form (only one or two were part of a full service), made by Worcester in the Dr. Wall period. The design has a central rose surrounded by garlands of flowers in cartouches, all done in a soft European palette. Alternating with these cartouches are others that are pure white, making this decoration very unusual. The background of the dish is, of course, the desirable blue scale made so famous by Worcester.

7 3/4" in diameter, with the open crescent mark. Condition is excellent; the gilding is in fine shape, with some scattered areas that might be minor wear, but are most likely just skips in the original application.
