An antique Royal Worcester plate hand painted by John Stinton just prior to WW1 (1912). John Stinton was well known for painting highland cattle scenes and also the less common castle scenics as in this plate here. The plate features a central image of Doune Castle which is in Perthshire, Scotland.
The castle still looks pretty much the same today as when it was painted by John Stinton over 110 years ago. The plate also features outer vignettes of floral sprigs in gilt cartouches.
These are nicely painted too as can be seen in the close ups but are not initialled or signed. The outer margin is in cobalt blue and the rim is gilded. It is a superb example and very scarce. To the underside is the Worcester mark in puce with the date code for 1912. It is also signed to the face by John Stinton.
Remarkably good condition, no damage or restoration. Very little wear, overall a fine piece. Height 2.5 cms (1.1 inches) Width 23.7 cms (9.25 inches) Weight 450 grams (before packing) Stock Code: 8240 OC13-1.
