A Derby (Robert Bloor) green bordered botanical plate, circa 1825. Hand painted with a specimen flower - a leaved pink Convolvulus and two butterflies - on a white background with gilt inner border and decorated gilt rim. Scripted title painted to the reverse with iron red Bloor Derby mark (see photograph).
The Derby Porcelain Company, later called Royal Crown Derby, is currently the oldest British porcelain factory still in production. Derby pottery has gone through many iterations from the mid 1700s to today. In the 1820s, it came under the ownership of Robert Bloor and was named "Bloor Derby". As the company was in financial difficulty Robert Bloor had to find a way to turn it around. Finding a large stock of less-than-perfectly potted items that had been rejected, he decided to create a large range of cobalt blue items with busy flower paintings, which would hide the small imperfections in the glaze. Against expectations, this range of deeply coloured wares became very popular.
Diameter: 25.5 cm
Condition: No chips, cracks or restoration. Some small fox marks front, and a small group on the back as shown. On close inspection some fine crazing under the glaze. Gilding in good condition for age.
