Out of stock
A rare antique Royal Worcester porcelain blue and white trophy pedestal with gilt accents. The boat-shaped bowl features two different monochrome landscape designs in a traditional and highly detailed style. The top rim is lined with hobnail style bobbles and topped with a delicate gilt edge. This accent is repeated in miniature lower down the piece. The pedestal is wrapped with a floral garland design again lined in gilt. The bowl is sandwiched between two curved yet delicate handles, which gives the Royal Worcester a trophy silhouette. The porcelain piece is stamped with the Royal Worcester England mark on the underside. The familiar mark is stamped in puce above two number markers. The first “Rd. No. 327382” is in a rectangle. The second number “2025” sits beneath.
The Worcester Porcelain Factory was founded in 1751 by Dr. John Wall and Royal Worcester marks incorporating a crown above a circle were first introduced in 1862 and combined the number 51 within the circle signifying the year Dr. Wall founded the original company. Along with this established mark, four small dots sit either side of the crown which dates the trophy pedestal from 1899. The dots were added as a dating system established by Royal Worcester between 1892-1915.
Item measures approximately: Height 7 3/4” x Width 5 3/4″ x Depth 2 1/2”
