In 1820 the Society of Arts awarded the Gold Medal to John Rose, the founder of Coalport China Works, for his new formula for feldspar porcelain and an improved glaze. This formula created a striking white porcelain body and bright enamel colors, such as can be seen on this compote. Objects created using this new “feltspar” were proudly branded with a special Society of Arts mark, which can be seen on the base of the compote. This compote belonged to the Hughes family of Wales, featuring the family armorial depicting a Cornish chough holding a fleur-de-lis.
