The Peony (or Mansfield) Pattern was one of the mainstays of the Worcester factory for many years, and was reproduced by the Royal Worcester Company in later periods. In the earliest Worcester period, it was produced from the mid-1750s right up until about 1778, but most examples date from the 1770s. The pattern was also used at Caughley, Lowestoft and a few other factories. This pattern was extremely popular, always painted by hand in cobalt blue. Not all pieces bear the factory marks of a painted W or crescent moon. This sugar bowl and matching lid is about four and one-eighth inches high. The only damage to this antique porcelain set is some tiny chips to the finial, as usual.
