Dessert Plate, c.1813-1820
This plate was painted by William Pegg the Quaker, after his return to the factory in 1813. His style appreciably changed during his second term at the factory. Flowers now seem to have been intended to create a mood. They are still botanically accurate but now have been grouped and positioned for maximum visual impact.
