Antique 1890s Imari 10 Inch Dinner Plate England Swags Gold Colclough
This is a great antique Victorian era Imari dinner plate in the Imari style and color palette using cobalt, rust and green hand colored on sepia transfers of floral and geometric lozenges and floral swags with gold trim so popular in the Victorian era during the fad for all things Japanese.
This gorgeous dinner measures 10 inches in diameter and was made by Colclough, England and dates from 1893-1908.
The plate is only marked England with the pattern number 981 but is definitely Colclough as I have handled quite a bit of the early production of pattern number 981 that starts to be marked in 1908. So, spanning the late Victorian into the Edwardian period.
The imari dinner plate is in very good +++ used vintage condition with the gold still bright.
There is a bit of minor wear and occasional tiny glaze chip on the rim which happens often for this age and type of porcelain.
There may be a mineral speck as well, called kiln dust from the firing process of the 100+ year old gorgeous plates.
I have bread plates and salad plates currently in this pattern.
