Derby superb dish painted with a botanical specimen of 'Balm Leaved Archangel or Dead Nettle' titled verso c.1795-1800
This is a very fine example of Derby expertise in botanical painting and although the first period of Quaker Pegg's work at Derby isn't very well documented, the similarity of the style to his second period botanical painting is striking. It is very probable that this is the work of Pegg or his superior. The 'crushed crown mark' in blue on the reverse relates very directly with 'crushed crowns' on known Pegg pieces in the second period on red marked pieces from 1813.
