  INTRODUCING CHELSEA PLATES


 
  Chelsea plates are real plates in miniature. The designs are based primarily on antique English transfer ware from the late 18th century through to the early 20th century and many are from my own collection. I also plan to include examples of earlier Japanese and Chinese Export plates which have so richly influenced the English designs.

The plates are made by hand in our London studio, glazed and gilded with 22k gold before being decorated with ceramic enamels printed from my own artwork. The colours are permanently fused onto the glaze in the kiln, just like full sized china, so will not fade or yellow with age.

I will be adding to these pages over the coming months giving more information about individual pieces, and the processes by which they were made.

CHELSEA SILVER
We have a small range of silverware available which compliments our Chelsea plates beautifully.
 


 
    DATING
Whilst it is often possible to precisely date a specific plate, it is not always clear when a pattern was first introduced, especially as many patterns were made by multiple factories, or derived from Chinese Export plates of a much earlier time. I have therefore given an indication of period which I will revise as more information becomes available.

COLOUR
If you need more than one plate it is advisable to order them at the same time as we cannot guarantee colour consistency from printing to printing.
