Colorful early 19th C cup & saucer in the so-called "dollar pattern" which was popular with many English factories about 1805-10. I date this set c. 1810.
Although the set was sold to me as by Machin, I've been in correspondence with the noted British ceramics researcher and co-author of "Machin Porcelain & Earthenwares", Philip Miller, about this cup. He believes it was probably made by Rathbone.
The set is unmarked except for a green tally mark on the inside of the cup's foot rim.
The set is in excellent condition. There is the slightest bit of wear to the ochre rims. The cup has no cracks, no chips, no crazing, no repairs. The cup rings when tapped. The saucer has some crazing, but no chips or repairs. The saucer does not ring, but has no detectable cracks.
If you collect "Dollar Pattern", I also have a Spode coffee can & saucer, and 2 Spode trios for sale in that pattern.
