Majestic Royal Worcester Porcelain Flight, Barr, & Barr Small Cabinet Cup with Chastleton House Painting, Baxter Era
This lovely antique cabinet cup was made circa 1813-1840 during the Flight, Barr, & Barr era of Royal Worcester Porcelain Works. The scene depicts Chastleton House, an example of Jacobean architecture in Oxfordshire, England.
The enamel ground is a crisp apple green; this is a lovely contrast to the gilt detailing and the raised pearlized border. By style this painting is either the work of Thomas Baxter, who was in employ from 1814 until 1816, or of one of his students.
The cup measures 4 3/16" or just less than 4 1/4" tall and is in very good vintage condition with no breaks, chips, or repairs noted.
The enamel ground is a crisp apple green; this is a lovely contrast to the gilt detailing and the raised pearlized border.
The inside bottom does show a bit of crazing under magnification, and it appears that someone used this piece as a vase; there is some hard water staining inside.
The bottom of the cup indicates the maker and era both in the handwriting and in the impressed mark to the right of the circular depression on the underside of the piece. The impressed mark is an FBB with a crown just above.
