Description

This is an antique Regency / George IV set of 6 Flight, Barr & Barr Worcester porcelain dessert plates. Each plate is decorated in brown overglaze enamel with a restrained design of twigs ,leaves, flowers and berries on a white ground, picked out with gilt highlights and with a gilt border inside the scalloped and gadrooned rim.

Five plates are fully marked to the reverse, one is unmarked, presumably made as a replacement soon after purchase, but is otherwise identical. Marks are appropriate for period, being a red printed mark reading "Royal Porcelain Works, Flight Barr & Barr, Worcester & Coventry St London" under a crown together with an impressed mark, "FBB" under an impressed crown.

If you would like any further information please don;t hesitate to contact me.


Measurements

Diameter of each plate is approximately 22.5 cm (8 and 7/8 inches)
Each plate weighs approximately 380 grams
Total weight of all 6 plates is approximately 2.3 kg

Declaration

Breckland Antiques has clarified that the Flight Barr & Barr Worcester, Set of 6 Dessert Plates (LA156542) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1820.

Condition

Condition is very good for age and use. There are minor signs of use to the well of each plate, in the form of minute scratches, but the pattern shows no significant wear and no damage. The gilding is in excellent condition throughout. There are no cracks, no staining and no crazing. There are small chips and nicks to the underside of the gadrooned rims (see pictures 11 & 12), presumably caused by careless stacking, but these do not show on the front of the plates which display beautifully.

Delivery

Please note, whilst I regularly post to the UK free of charge,these plates, properly wrapped, will make a large and heavy parcel. I prefer not to inflate the price of my items to cover postage and packing. The £8 delivery charge represents a contribution only for a parcel this size. I am more than happy to cover the remainder. I will ship worldwide. International customers please contact me for an exact shipping cost as the price given is an estimate for the USA only.
