A Derby Porcelain Named View Dish with River Scene - Georgian Antique c.1815 (Code 7938)
An early 19th Century Georgian Regency period Derby porcelain shallow dish dating to the crossover reigns of George III / IV. It is of lozenge shape with a pie-crust rim which is highlighted in gilt. The margin is glazed in cobalt blue with a stylised classical gilt design.
The centre is painted with a named view scene and it is entitled to the reverse 'Ferry over the [Garigliano]' which is a river in central Italy. We have not been able to trace the location point, but of course these items often had substantial artistic licence applied with the painter taking elements and combining them together into a single scene. The painting is in the style of George Robertson and was almost certainly painted by him. There is no signature mark, but this is usual for a piece of this age.
There appears to be the trace of a Derby mark below the titling although it is very faint and difficult to make out. A lovely looking example in good order for the period.
Very good for period. Very minor rubbing to gilt rim. Rest of gilding and scene in very good order with very little wear. Minor glaze flaws from production as typical for period. Some under glaze marks and spots to the reverse. Some very fine crazing. Derby mark all but invisible to underside.
