Fine Antique Porcelain Hand Painted & Reticulated Cabinet Plate With Butterflies (Code 1006)

  • £12000


A 19th century porcelain plate with hand painted center image of butterflies over a pool.  The central image is beautifully painted in pastel tones.  The border has vermiform gilding and there is lovely en- grisaille wreath with birds and leaves.  The edge of the plate is pierced with gilt details.  The porcelain is white and has a slight green tint to the translucency.  There are no makers marks but it dates around 1860 and would have been from one of the top factories, and it does bear some resemblance to pieces by Minton.  There is a painted pattern number to the reverse.  It's a fine piece for the collector.



Minor wear with some rubbing of the gilt at the well margin.  Also some discolouration of the fine ribs at the well margin which looks to have seeped up from beneath the glaze, perhaps due to the white glaze being thin at this point.
