With Balleri, Rita and Rucellai, Oliva, ‘Amici di Doccia Quaderni, Numero VII, 2013, The Victoria and Albert Museum Collection’, Edizioni Polistampa, Firenze, 2014 p. 84, Cat. 64 64. Soup dish with Imari-type decoration circa 1780-1790 hard-paste porcelain with tin-glaze painted in red, blue and gold diam. 23,2 cm no mark inv. C.700-1909 gift: Malcom T. Evans Soup dish with dense Imari style decorations with a flowering branch in the centre and a large peony; on the back of the rim there are lightly sketched monochrome blue flowering branches. The decorations inspired by Imari porcelain are very numerous in the last Quarter of the 18thcentury and the early 19th century although they are rarely mentioned in documents (CASPRINI 2000, p. 185-189). The elaborate decoration on the rim is unusual in the Imari-type porcelain produced at Doccia which is better represented by other pieces (A. Biancalana in LA MANIFATTURA TOSCANA DEI GINORI 1998, cat. 56-57, 76-78). It was formerly in the Fountaine collection. A.B. Bibliography: unpublished
