Tayler & Fletcher
Fine Art and Antiques - Thursday 20th June 2019

A very fine and rare pair of mid-19th century Worcester (Kerr and Binns, 1852-1862), cabinet plates;

each with shaped gadrooned gilded border surrounding a raised celeste blue outer with three reserves very finely decorated in enamels with floral sprays within scrolling gilded cartouches surrounding an inner gilded ring and central armorial crest (possibly the Earl of Coventry) the Latin translation of the motto on the crest is 'With Candor and Constancy, Frankly and Firmly', each with single impressed circular mark to underside and each 26cm in diameter, Note: The vendor informs us that these plates have been in his family's possession since the mid-20th century and that they were part of a service originally ex. Croome Court, near Pershore in Worcestershire.  A while ago, the vendor showed the plates to Henry Sandon at the Worcester Museum who confirmed their rarity and stated they were better examples than the single plate that they had from the same Croome Court service which is currently displayed in the Museum
