This charming Eighteenth century Caughley dish is beautifully moulded with fluted sides.

 

The Full nankin pattern is a complex and very busy oriental scene which includes decorative pagodas, temples, houses and building within Islands, hills and rocks with some lush vegetation. There are also figures crossing an arched stone bridge as  well as small sailing boats on the water.

 

This stunning blue and white oriental scene is bounded by a band of geometric 'birds eye' type of decoration, and then the final rim decoration is of a complex oriental type with many decorative elements.

 

There is a raised foot rim on the underside of the dish.

Condition:

This delightful eighteenth century Caughley dish is in very good condition with a very clear and sharp printed scene. There are no cracks, repairs or restoration. The only minor imperfection are what appears to be two chips on the rim of the raised foot. However, the larger of the two is actually glazed over, so is not damage but there at the time of manufacture. The smaller one is a later chip. These do no detract from the beauty of this dish and it is very much an excellent Caughley dish.
