Here is a notable mug with a fancy handle that was part of the Bernard Watney Collection and has several of his labels on the underside. The painting includes numerous flowers—and a butterfly, which I assume was added just for fun. At first glance you might think the decoration is printed on, as with so much of Worcester porcelain, and indeed it does look like a Worcester flower pattern, but it has been meticulously painted by hand, and expertly done. It has a swelling baluster shape and is nearly four and a half inches tall. This exceptional mug has been illustrated as figure 30a in Watney’s “Liverpool Porcelain of the 18thc.” It was also shown in the 1997 Liverpool Exhibition. No damage, but some firing stains to the rim.


A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
