Rockingham plate, very unusual green on blue landscapes & flowers, c.1826
Rare Rockingham plate, with ‘shark’s tooth & s-scroll’ moulded rim, painted to the centre with a large purple poppy, the rim with four reserves of flower groups within gilt foliate borders, reserved on a deep cobalt underglaze blue ground painted with landscapes in green enamels. Red griffin mark, also pattern no. 560, 1826-30.
The green landscapes are very unusual, and only appear on these plates. Their closest comparison is to the raised- gold flowers seen on the superior wares, on the same shaped plates. The number is interesting, and is not referring to the pattern no. 560 seen on tea wares- a rather plain turquoise & gold- but to a separate pattern book system used for services. The size of these plates would suggest a dinner service, which are scarce from Rockingham; smaller dessert services are more often encountered.
