Vintage hand painted plate with portrait of a pair of Terrier dogs Jack Russel Terriers or Fox Terriers or Airedale Terriers. Artist signed Jack Stanley. Made Royal WOrcester, 1929 with gold factory mark. Marketed in the USA by Sandor Decsenyi, Pasadena, CA, who seem to have specialised in outstanding English porcelain.


Measures almost 10 1/2 inches in diameter. Painted area is 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm) in diameter. 

Cream coloured ground. Borders and sides are very richly decorated with raised and beaded gilding. Round, central reserve with outstanding painting of a pair of dogs in a landscape. Dogs are believed to be Parson or Jack Russel Terriers, but possibly another branch of the Terrier family. The range of colours used is very exciting - from golden yellows, through greens and browns, reds and smoky hues, to pinks, purples and blues. Details of dogs is stunning. Brush-strokes quite clear when viewed at some angles.

Quality of the gilding is superior. The rim under the plate is also gilded, which is most unusual and indicates the esteem that the piece was held in. According to Henry Sandon in his book on Royal Worcester Porcelain (page 108), Jack Stanley, born 1905 was one of the foremost painters of his time. He worked at the Worcester factory between 1919 and 1933. 

The painting is artist signed, lower right, J Stanley.
Underneath the plate are a number of handwritten marks, including HQ, Z 411 and most exceptionally, a golden Royal Worcester mark for 1929 (the diamond under the mark indicates the year) with gold printed SANDOR DECSENYI PASADENA. CALIF. 

Condition is very good. There is crazing to the glaze, normal & expected for Royal Worcester porcelain of this age. No chips/cracks/losses/wear/restoration of any sort.
