(62) Provenance: The collection of the late Geoffrey Harley, Pickwick End, Corsham.MAFRA CALDAO', late 19th / early 20th century, 33.8cm high (max). Evesham Gold, named after the local fruit growing region near Worcester, was developed by Royal Worcester in 1961 amid a new trend for informal dining that was to bring the humble casserole dish from the kitchen to the dining table!The design was in the tradition of still life fruit compositions which had be used for centuries to test a painters skill.The early wares were soft-paste porcelain with bodies that contained soaprock, commonly called in most ceramic circles as soapstone.
The chemical analyses of these wares closely correlates to those of the Bristol manufactory.
The success of their early experimentation is unknown but they clearly came in to contact with the Bristol manufactory of Lund and Miller around 1750-1751 who were using soaprock as a prime raw material in their porcelain production.
This appears to be a then unique method for producing porcelain.
