A superb 1820 Bloor antique Derby porcelain flower painted plate possibly painted by the great Moses Webster circa 1820-25. Decorated with what only can be described as the most skillful and beautifully painted flowers including tulips, violets, auriculas and other flowers. Cream background with a gilt lined border, red painted mark to the base of a crown and six dots. An observer at the time commented that Moses Webster’s painting of flowers “They look so real you can almost smell them”.
In 1815, the Crown Derby factory was leased to the firm's salesman and clerk, Robert Bloor. Bloor borrowed heavily to be able to make the payments demanded but proved himself to be a highly able businessman in his ways of recouping losses and putting the business back on a sound financial footing. He also possessed a thorough appreciation of the aesthetic side of the business, and under him the company produced works that were richly coloured and elegantly styled, including brightly coloured floral designs. These designs proved extremely and lastingly popular, and Derby continued to thrive.
Circa 1820.
The plate is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs, and almost no wear to the decoration.
