Antique Indian Tree Pattern Coalport China
There is something special you notice with antique Coalport china. The texture of the hand applied colours. The intricacy of the gilt and its richness. The colour of the porcelain bone china and glazes used. It all adds up to the feeling of quality and the workmanship and pride which went into producing china in the 19th century is very apparent.
Antique Coalport china
This piece of Coalport Indian Rose dates from the 1870s, not the peak of production volumes, but perhaps the best period for overall quality.
It's an unusual design mould as well, with a pronounced upper and lower sectional moulded rib, feeding centrally over and through the deeply indented rim.
