BLUE AND WHITE PORCELAIN
AND CORMORANT PATTERN PICKLELEAF DISH
attractive Caughley porcelain blue and white pickleleaf
dish in excellent condition with a particularly fine, crisp, underglaze blue transfer
print of the popular
Cormorant pattern. Contemporary accounts refer to these
dishes as "Vine
leaves for Pickles" and the pattern as "Pleasure Boat". A great
addition to your fine 18th century blue and white early English
porcelain collection." Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.
The print is the Caughley example of the Fisherman
pattern. See Caughley & Worcester Porcelains
1775-1800 G. Godden, plate 138 for a similar example of this fine Caughley porcelain shape with unglazed biscuit
length 91 mm max. width 92 mm max.
The piece is close to perfect with just one tiny pinhead flat edge chip
seen on the back at the point of 9.00 o'clock. You are
unlikely to find an example in better condition.
