Six Barr Period Worcester Porcelain "Trios" circa. 1800

I recently purchased a large, though incomplete set of Barr period Worcester porcelain in a grape pattern. I will be selling items from this set in groups and individually.

This group consists of six small ring-handled coffee cups, six tea cups, and six and saucers. The pieces are banded with a grape and leaf design in deep brown (with purple cast), with tendrils and bands of gilt. Berthoud shows this shape and decoration of the coffee cup in "Compendium of British Cups".

All cups and 1 saucers are marked with incised "B" (mark used 1792-1804)

Size: Saucers approximately 5.5" diameter, coffee cups 2.625" diameter, 2.875"high, tea cups 3.25" diameter, 2.5" high (some slight variations among pieces)

Condition: Very good. One coffee cup has chip to top rim near handle, one tea cup has line through upper loop at cup body, some gilt wear to rims. with only some wear to gilt rims, short line from rim of one saucer, all saucers have wear to gilt and paint.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
