This 18th Century Porcelain Trio is very representative of Worcester's Flight period. The spiral fluting, underglaze blue border, and sparse gilded decorations are characteristic of this period in the history of Worcester porcelains. Note the insects! The set was made c.1783-8, according to Godden's marks 4327 & 4328.
The saucer and tea bowl are marked with an underglaze blue painted Flight mark with crescent, the coffee cup is marked with a small blue crescent mark. The painted Flight mark is quite rare.
All 3 pieces are in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, and no restorations. The gilding is amazingly intact. All 3 pieces ring nicely when tapped.
The saucer's diameter is 5-1/4". The tea cup's diameter is 3-1/2", and the coffee cup is 2-1/2" high.
