Royal Doulton Artist Signed Percy Curnock Cabinet Plate Floral Gold 1926 Mint For Sale
I have for sale this evening a very rare and beautiful piece of porcelain by Royal Doulton. This is a fully hand painted piece of art on porcelain created by one of the great master porcelain painters named Percy Curnock who is recorded as the longest sitting painter that worked for Doulton from the late 1880's till he retired in the mid 1950's. He is famous for his scenic pieces and his floral designs with a specialty in roses. The plate is profusely gilded in gold as trim work and in high relief as well and is the very finest work in gold I have ever seen and rivals the pieces from the Pickard studio that I have handled. In the center bordered by a ring of gold is a magnificent spray of flowers of all types that are so well done and life like that you could almost smell the scents wafting toward you. The variation in colors is breath taking and the piece is signed P. Curnock and is a very fine example of his masterly work. The foot rim is also heavily gilded which is only done on the very finest pieces denoting them as "first quality" and is a nice finish to this luxurious piece.
Measurements and dating: The plate measures 8" by 8" square and is 9" from corner to corner. The date code on this piece is H1985 dating it to 1926 when he was at the absolute height of his skills with thirty years in at the Doulton firm.
Condition: Is very very near mint and actually I find no fault at all with the piece but there may be a tiny scratch or rub somewhere that I am missing even though I have gone over this piece very well in my examination of it but I am not perfect. There is a small spot on the reverse that looks like some dust or dirt particles adhered to the porcelain when it was fired but this does not affect the show value of the piece and is not unusual to find in porcelain and is mentioned just for the sake of accuracy.
sale records: Show that similar pieces have sold recently for between $400 and $900 and one sold in 2006 for over $1400.
Final Note: The plate stand is not included in the purchase price.
