Joseph Machin Coffee Can/Cup & Saucer, Chinoiserie, "The Proposal", Antique English c1810
The can is about 2-3/4" high, with a 2-5/8" diameter. The very deep saucer's diameter 1s 5-3/8".
The saucer is in excellent condition. No chips, no cracks, no repairs. It rings like a bell when tapped.
The can has a slight ring, and no cracks or chips that I can find. There is a slight discoloration to a very small part of the interior of the ring handle. It fluoresces in black light, so must be a professional repair. I have taken a close-up of that small spot for you.
This well documented pattern can be seen on page 118 in the book "Machin Porcelains & Earthenwares" by Bill Thom and Philip Miller. It's on page 127 of Howard Davis' "Chinoiserie", and a photo of the can is plate 232, page 39 of "A Compendium of British Cups" by Michael Berthoud. He dates the can c. 1810.
