Object statement
Dish, porcelain, designed by Dale Holborn for the Empire Porcelain Co, England, 1940-1950
This dish belongs to the Bill Chapman Collection. Collected mostly in the 1970s and 1980s, the majority of objects from the collection illustrate the use of Australian imagery in ceramics, glass and metalwork made either in Britain for the Australian market, or in Australia, in the late 19th century and in the first part of the 20th century.

Australian and English manufacturers of decorative arts became interested in Australian flora and fauna motifs in the early 19th century. From the mid 1850s, following the discovery of gold in Australia in 1851, they began using Australian imagery on a larger scale - among the most striking early examples were silver presentation pieces and gold jewellery. In the late 19th century and in the decades that followed Australia's Federation in 1901, a number of ceramics decorated with Australian motifs were produced in Britain. Wedgwood, Doulton and Worcester in particular designed and made series of wares mostly destined for the Australian market. These tablewares were sold by local retailers for example Sydney's Flavelle Bros, Feldheim Gotthelf and Co and Anthony Horden. Australian firms often copied English designs, particularly those transfer-printed at Doulton.
