A Chelsea plate, heavily potted with the three stilt marks on the bottom and a small gold anchor. The outer edge with small molded waves and the inner edge of the plate rim with larger ones. On the rim the gilding and the blue decoration accentuate this motion (don’t get seasick). The bird, resting on a branch with green leaves and red berries is painted toward the upper side of the plate. 8 ¼ inches (21 cm diameter).

Condition: No chips cracks hairlines or repairs. Gilding wear on the outer edge and some on the plate rim. Some knife scratches including on the bird. Old museum accession number on the bottom.

A nice example of the less elaborate Chelsea of the period.
