This porcelain plate was produced in Wales by Nantgarw between 1814 and 1820. Illustration 74 in the “Nantgarw Porcelain Album” by W. D. John, G.J. Coombes and Katherine Coombes, shows a dish with the identical pattern to this plate. The book states that the dish in illustration 74 was decorated in London. We assume that this plate had once been part of a service with this design and therefore painted in London. It measures 9 inches in diameter and is 1 1/4 inches deep. The porcelain is extremely thin and translucent. There are 3 rough stilt marks on the back of the plate. There are birds contained in 7 circular black backgrounds around the border. The hand painting is finely detailed in vivid enamel colors. The interior of the plate has large pink roses amid incredibly intricate hand gilding. The delicacy of this design is astonishing. The factory never had more than 20 employees at one time and the period of production was merely 6 years. Finding such an exceptional example from Nantgarw is a rare occurrence. Condition: Overall, this plate is in excellent condition with some minor exceptions. There is the slightest hint of wear to a couple of areas of gilding on the front of the plate. There is probably 98% of the gilding intact. The back of the plate has 3 areas of discoloration in the glaze. It appears that someone had tried to remove it. Neither of these flaws affect the beauty of this plate.
