Antique Royal Doulton Hand-Painted "Scenes of Italy" Cabinet Plates - Set of 12

Antique Royal Doulton Hand-Painted "Scenes of Italy" Cabinet Plates - Set of 12

$3,800.00

A magnificent collection from the noble Royal Doulton pottery studios in England, we are thrilled to present this extremely rare, complete set of 12 antique cabinet plates featuring hand-painted scenes from Italy's spectacular Lake District. Painted by Royal Doulton's great porcelain painter Percy Curnock, each of the twelve plates is nothing short of a masterpiece.

With exquisite hand-applied gold encrusted details embellishing their rich, cobalt rims, these incredible plates are truly one-of-a-kind works of art. Breathtaking, colorful, hand-painted scenes from Lake Como, Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano masterfully fill the center of each plate, making the series a captivating tour through one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Each plate is hand-signed on the front by Percy Curnock, with the description and location of each specific scene hand-painted on the back of the plate.

Made exclusively for sale at New York's long-shuttered Ovington Brothers store, these lavish plates are considered "cabinet plates", meaning they were designed to be displayed in a cabinet or hung on the wall rather than used for food service. With gently scalloped, gold-encrusted edges, the plates have gilt foot rims and are back-stamped with the regal Royal Doulton crest used from 1922 to 1927. 

This absolutely exceptional set is sure to take pride of place in any collection and add their lavish aesthetic and refined elegance to your home today.  


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In excellent antique condition. Circa 1920. 10.25" in diameter. Handwash Only.

Learn More About Percy Curnock

Percy Cunock was a floral and scenic painter for Royal Doulton and regarded as one of the most outstanding ceramic artists in England. Percy worked for Royal Doulton for almost 70 years, beginning in 1885 and finally retiring in 1954. During that time he witnessed three Royal visits to the Doulton factory and was himself awarded an M.B.E. (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in 1954, presented to him by the Queen Mother. He was known to thousands around the world not just for his hand painted wares that have graced noble and famous homes, but also for the best selling tableware designs that he created for Royal Doulton.

Interestingly, Percy did not come from a pottery background, but rather his father was a farmer in Warwickshire, England. He came to the Potteries as a child and at 13 was taken on by Doulton as an apprentice ceramic modeller. Percy perfected his craft during his early days at Doulton by also studying at the Burslem School of Art. Doulton themselves commented that few artists "can have given greater service to a firm or an industry". Always committed, Percy returned from retirement during WII to work in the decorating department to replace colleagues who had joined the war effort.

Learn More About Italy's Lake District

Located at the foot of the alps separating Italy and Switzerland, the Italian Lakes include Lake Como, Lake Garda, Lake Idro, Lake Iseo, Lake Lugano, Lake Maggiore, Lake Orta and Lake Varese. These large, subalpine lakes are all considered glacial lakes that have been formed at the end of the Ice Age by the retreating glaciers. The Italian Lakes region experiences a sub-Mediterranean climate with mild temperatures and fairly sunny weather throughout the year. The mild climate supports the growth of various Mediterranean plants like olive trees, Canary Island date palms, Mediterranean cypress, and parasol pines along the shores of the Italian Lakes.

With unmatched vistas, the Italian Lakes have been a popular tourist destination since the Roman Era, and an inspiration for writers, poets and painters.
