An extremely rare and highly important First Period Dr. Wall Worcester Junket Dish

Junket Dish

 

An extremely rare and highly important First Period Dr. Wall Worcester Junket Dish, of circular shape and silver form, moulded with shell panels coloured in orange and yellow alternating with puce bordered floral reserves, surrounding a central flower head picked out in bright colours framed with a yellow border, the undulating barbed and arched rim with yellow borders on either side framing garlands of flowers.

Circa 1762

The curious and brilliant colours are recorded on another example from the Rous Lench Collection, but other than that example, no other is recorded. The oranges, puces, yellows and purples are recorded on the Geranium moulded creamboats and Lamprey handled creamjugs of the same date and are used in the same way by picking out the moulded details. See The Zorensky Collection Nos. 117 for the former and 97 for the latter.
