A fine Worcester heart shaped dish

Provenance:
John Gough Collection

A fine Worcester heart shaped dish, well painted in coloured enamels with cattle and sheep in a river landscape, within a turquoise, black and gilt band, and painted with clusters of fruits, and birds in flight, the blue ground rim with gilt 'feather', 'C' scroll and dentil bands, 10 1/4" wide, circa 1780-85, blue crescent mark 

See Worcester Porcelain, The Zorensky Collection, page 291, for a square dish similarly decorated. It is likely that Worcester only produced one dessert service in this lavish pattern
