Derby plate , Thynne Service with Sevres style turquoise dot & rose pattern, c. 1810

$740.00 AUD

Superb Derby ‘Thynne’ pattern plate, the lobed silver- shape form with five rosehead groups to the centre on white ground, the rim richly decorated in the Sevres-style with a broad border of turquoise jeweling, reserved with five quatrefoil panels of rose sprays, with gilt dentil rim.

Red crown & baton mark,

also painter’s/ gilder’s number ’07’,

Circa 1810


Condition: some slight re-touching of enamels, gilt line, with only minor wear.   Displays well.

The ’07’ mark could be either painter or gilder; examples from this period sometimes have both, in red. If it is the painter’s mark, ‘7’ is the notable William Billingsley – these are certainly ‘Billingsley Roses’, a technique he pioneered at Derby and went on to teach to other porcelain painters of flowers. However, an ’07’ mark is not apparently recorded, just ‘7’; it may therefore be a red herring, and in fact be the gilder’s number.

Sir Henry Thynne of Longlete was delivered a service of this pattern in the early 19th century, hence the name.
