A fine set of First Period Worcester Phoenix pattern plates with lobed border, depicting two phoenix type birds amongst prunus and chrysanthemum sprays with a wheatsheaf motif in the foreground, all within a garlanded border, alternate gilt and rouge de fer panels.

The form of the plate was taken from Meissen porcelain although the pattern itself is not found on Meissen. The design has adapted a number of Japanese motifs to create a rich Kakiemon pattern so typical of Worcester. (see below).

Reference: Worcester Porcelain 1751-1790: The Zorensky Collection, Simon Spero & John Sandon, Page 249, colour illustration 298, for discussion of the pattern. The authors point out that the form of the plate was taken from Meissen porcelain although the pattern is not found on Meissen. The design has adapted a number of Japanese motifs to create a rich Kakiemon pattern so typical of Worcester. A variation is found on dessert plates where the Phoenix's wings are more open. They write, The Phoenix pattern is one of the most intricate of Worcester's oriental designs and would have been very costly to produce. It generally only occurs on the best thin porcelain and is always carefully and exactly painted.
