Description
This Swan and Nautilus shell porcelain table centrepiece by Royal Worcester could also be used as a vase - either way, filled with fresh flowers it would look fabulous. The nautilus shell is supported by bulrushes and the swan, which sits amongst flowers and leaves, all on a rocky base. Either side of the swan are wells formed from shells which are coloured a pale pink and would have held sweetmeats or pastilles. The whole piece is finished with a lustre glaze and extensive hand gilding. The base carries the impressed Worcester mark, but there is no date code. It also carries two hand painted numbers in gold which would probably be gilders marks. There is no shape number on the base, but Worcester's early list of shapes is divided into Classes, and in Class 4 - Centres, Baskets and Dessert Ornaments, is number 88 which is just described as Swan and shell.
