Antique Worcester "blind Earl" Dish, 1770, Dr. Wall Period, Fab Condition:
$305


Extremely rare Dr. Wall-period "Blind Earl" dish produced in the very first period of Royal Worcester, 1770s. The "Blind Earl" pattern was originally made for the Earl of Coventry who, blinded in a riding accident, wanted a pattern he could apprehend through touch. As such, the dish has raised stems and buds as well as a dainty oh-so-18th-century scalopped edge accented with a delicate gilt motif.
Hand-painted features include: one butterfly, one insect, multiple garlands, one rose bud curving along left edge. Beautiful details.
As the photos indicate, there is some fading to the enamel, especially on the bright green leaves. The patina is lovely, however. Also there is one long-ago-made tiny flea bite on the gilt midway up the raised rose bud stem. The nick does not compromise the silhouette, there's just a very slight indentation where there should be gilt.
This is a truly spectacular piece of porcelain.
Please email me with questions. I ship to the continental U.S. only. I will ship abroad but we must make prior arrangements first.
Thank you, and good luck!
