Lovely very fine Coalport porcelain muffin dish and cover with a diamond net embossed finish. Shaped dish and cover rim. The body all painted with diapers of fine green dots in the squares with puce framed vignettes of flowers, all trimmed with gold. An ornate moulded leaf decoration around the knop formed from gilded spheres of various sizes.
Unmarked, attributed to Coalport by Michael Berthoud and Steven Goss, dated c.1830.
The plate measures 11" wide and 2 1/4" high. The cover is 9" wide and 4" high, combined height 6".
Condition is very good. There is evidence inside the lid of some restoration, extensive over-coating but I think the actual work is limited to some small, fine work to the knop, please see final photos. A short hairline to the edge of the lid and a little surface rubbing to the gilding.
