The First Period of production at Worcester (1751 to 1783), or the Dr Wall period, after one of the original partners, is a distinct collecting area. In contrast to the 19th and 20th century when, as Royal Worcester, many figures and ornamental pieces were made, First Period Worcester is predominantly devoted to functional (if sometimes spectacular) tableware.
 
The very earliest wares take their decoration from Chinese and Japanese (kakiemon) porcelain and their forms from silver shapes. Coloured enamels also predominate over underglaze blue decoration but demand quickly grew for underglaze blue decorated wares painted in imitation of Chinese originals, especially when a new and more durable body was perfected.
 
Good antique condition. Some grey speckles and few firing pockmarks to the glaze; wear to the gilt rim; two chips to the foot of the plate.
