A pair of Regency Spode desert dishes with Dulong blind moulded foliage and motifs, circa. 1815. The plates are further decorated with slightly naive, cheerful hand painted flower sprays. You will notice it bears no gilt rim - this might mean that it was made for Puritan (Protestant Christian) customers, who would not eat from gilt because of their religious beliefs.

‘The Dulong Moulding Story’
These plates would have once belonged to a large dessert service. It was very lightly potted in the famous ‘Dulong’ moulding that was popular between 1805 and 1820. This pattern was an imitation of a famous Meissen pattern from 1743, which was made to the order of Dutch merchants, Godefroy and Dulong. Around 1800 this pattern came to England, where Caughley, Coalport and Grainger Worcester took it up for their porcelains. We know from the fine detail that this is a Coalport version of this beautiful moulding.

Both plates are in excellent condition without any structural damage or repairs. There is some slight colour loss in places on the centre flower panels, mainly on the green leaves. Some odd small bits of colour are rubbed off the flower petals surrounding the plates. There is a tinyest of nicks to the rim on one the plates, barely visible. Other than this, these plates are in super condition and ring well and true.
