An elegant fine bone china medium sized plate featuring characters from A Rake’s Progress VI – The Gaming House, with hand painted 22kt burnished gold details, both luxurious and dishwasher friendly.
From the new collaboration, Melody Rose for the Sir John Soane’s Museum, a range of four plates and a teacup with saucer, created to accompany the museum’s Hogarth: Place and Progress exhibition opening in October 2019.
Inspired by William Hogarth’s The Rake’s Progress, the series of eight paintings created in 1734 tell the story of Tom Rakewell, a young man who follows a path of vice and self destruction after inheriting a fortune from his miserly father, finally ending up deranged and penniless in Bedlam, after his failure to establish himself in society.
Made in Stoke-on-Trent, England’s pottery heartland, each piece from the Melody Rose collection is handmade keeping at it’s heart the tremendous quality that made Britain renowned for its ceramics. Durable enough for every day use, the gilding and glorious detail also make them perfect for the grandest occasions.
Fine bone china, gilded by hand with 22kt burnished gold
Perfect for use everyday though washing by hand will help prevent hand gilded gold trim fading over time.
Medium/Lunch Plate : 22.5cm
Based on ‘ Rake’s Progress VI – The Gaming House’ 1732-1734 by William Hogarth
