Object Detail


Description
teacup and saucer decorated with painted floral motifs embellished with gilded foliage and dentil gilded to the inner rim. A gilded floral motif in the well of the cup.
The teacup and saucer appear to date from the Flight period porcelains, when the crescent mark was still used but without the addition of the Flight name.
This period bridges the gap between the Dr Wall period and the partnerships at Worcester.
