Square-shaped dessert dish

Next » « Previous

This dessert dish dating from 1788-1792 shows an example of the underglaze blue painted landscape designs imitating Paul Sandby, whose collection of labndscape paintings The Virtuosis' Museum was published in 1778. It is probable that the landscapes and blue borders were painted at Caughley and that the dish was then sent to be gilded at Robert and Humphrey Chamberlain's decorating establishment in Worcester. The gilded stripes shown here are unusual. More typical are gilded dots, known as Spangles.
