In the 1770s, the porcelain factory at Worcester marketed a large range of dinnerwares decorated with transfer-printed scenes, often in black but occasionally in purple or other colors. On this fluted sugar bowl, note how the design of the scenes—classical ruins in this case—seems to swell toward the center, corresponding to the rounded shape of the bowl. Worcester chose its prints very carefully to make the best use of this design feature. The bowl is about four and a half inches high and is in excellent condition. There is a tiny chip to the inside flange of the lid and gilt wear to the lid’s rim.
