A Dessert Plate from the Trotter Service, c.1825
A splendid service was made for Sir John Trotter of Dyrham Park, near Barnet in Hertfordshire. The rich flower decoration was painted by Moses Webster (1792-1870), one of the leading flower artists of the Bloor period. The Trotter service is his best known work. The pattern became popular, and other flower painters were engaged in the production of similar services. There is a variant of the pattern where Webster’s single flowers on the border alternate with small landscapes.
