Nantgarw Porcelain Dinner Plate c1820

Heading : Nantgarw Porcelain Dinner Plate

Period : George III/George IV
Marks : Impressed NANT-GARW C.W. 
Origin : Nantgarw, South Wales
Colour : overglaze polychrome enamelling and gilding
Pattern : gilt dentile rim around a central polychrome floral bouquet and insects as below

Features: lobed rim; moulded c-scrolls and rococo swags and flourishes to the lip in typical Nantgarw style; abbreviated moulded ribs fading to the well
Condition : Excellent; no chips, cracks or flakes; some tiny pinprick glaze-bubbles to both sides, and three tiny discoloured imperfections on the lip. 
Restoration : none
Dimensions : 3.5 cm high - 25.2 cm diameter
Weight : 508 grams 

Notes : This is a simplified version of a common Nantgarw decorative scheme; others that have passed through our hands having a single bouquet are augmented with small posies or floral sprigs to the rim or a linear detail around the inside edge of the lip - this is pared right down to the two constituent parts of a floral centrepiece and gilt rim decoration - with the exception of two extremely small insects on the lip, no more than 3 to 4mm in length. Elements such as this were often used to hide tiny defects in the glaze...
