Antique 1830s Imari 9 Inch Dinner Plate England Copper Luster Gaudy Welsh
This is a wonderful 19th century cobalt blue copper luster dinner plate in the Imari colors and Gaudy Welsh style by an unknown English potter from the 1830s.
The 9 inch in diameter dinner plate design has cobalt, rust and green hand painted design of stylized floral vignettes on a cobalt blue border with a oriental center design.
The plates has copper luster accents and center lining and scallops with further enamel accents.
The Imari design was popular in the Victorian era during the fad for all things Japanese and Chinese as those markets developed.
Gaudy Welsh as a style name developed in the late Victorian era by collectors, although most were made in Staffordshire.
The paneled ironstone plate is unmarked which is not unusual for this time period..
The Imari dinner plate is in very good ++ used vintage condition with most of the copper luster still bright although showing a bit of minor wear. There is wear on the raised enamel flower motif dots on the border as shone in the photos, which is also not unusual with the age.
There may be a mineral speck as well, called kiln dust from the firing process of the 100+ year old gorgeous plate which is so collectible and decorative.
