CROWN DERBY ARTIST ALBERT GREGORY DECORATED MINTON
PORCELAIN SEVRES ROSE POMPADOUR STYLE BOWL C.1916
fine hand painted Minton large punch or rose bowl by Royal Crown Derby
artist Albert Gregory. Albert Gregory signed cabinet pieces are among
the very best and this one contains as many examples of Gregory
roses, in the garland style, as are likely to be encountered
on a single piece. A wonderful example of finest porcelain china
decorated by one of the greatest ever ceramic artists. The whole is
beautifully balanced against the Sevres Rose pompadour
pink ground and enhanced by delicate swags of raised gilding. One for
the connoisseur and only the best and most discerning collectors of
best English porcelain and antiques!"Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.
Dated circa 1916 from printed and impressed Minton cypher
