A Rare First Period Worcester 'Strawberry dish'. c.1765-70

A Worcester soft paste ( Steatite ) porcelain pierced dessert dish with applied twig and floral handles.  It's original purpose is uncertain, but it is thought these dishes may have been made to hold Strawberries.  Moulded in the Rococo style of the period and carefully pieced while the porcelain was still soft.  After the initial firing, the dish was skilfully painted in polychrome enamels with typical Worcester factory flowers. After probably several firings to harden the different enamel colours,  the rich Worcester gilding was added and the dish fired yet again.  It measures 27.8cm. long including handles,  22cm. across and  6.5cm. high. It has no factory mark.

Good, but inevitably some damage
. The one handle appears to have been restored, there are loses to the petals of the applied flowers and there are a couple of short cracks from the rim, quite likely from the several firings during manufacture.  The decoration is in very good condition with minimal loses. There is also some fairly typical speckling to the glaze.
