Here is an 18th-century white porcelain handle made by the Chelsea factory in London in about 1750-55. It is crisply molded with Chinese-inspired prunus flowers and branches. The fork is eight and a half inches long. There is some surface oxidation to the metal but the porcelain has no chips or cracks. There is some glaze wear from use and a few small kiln flaws from the firing, which is common for Chelsea porcelain. Please check the photos.
