Victorian Gaudy Welsh Plate Copper Luster 1830s England 9 Inches Hand Painted
This is a wonderful Victorian era Gaudy Welsh copper luster dinner plate in the Imari color palate by an unknown Staffordshire, England 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 that is also referred to as Gaudy Welsh, although from Staffordshire.
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.
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.
