Coalport dessert centrepiece or comport. Item 3903.
This large hand painted and gilded centrepiece, or comport, from a dessert service was made by John Rose at Coalport in the 1820’s. It is beautifully painted with sprays of flowers on the top, the under side and on the pierced foot. It stands 168mm high, is 220mm wide and 365mm long. It is unmarked, but it is shown in plate 179, page 166, of Godden’s “British Porcelain An Illustrated Guide” together with other pieces. An interesting feature is a gilded, moulded crown at either end, perhaps to celebrate the coronation of George IV. There is wear to the gilding on the top and a firing crack high up on the foot where it meets the top.
