Here is a very unusual set. Yes, the saucer looks a little too big for the teabowl, but it is indeed the saucer for this cup. Both are transfer-printed in a very dark cobalt blue with a known Pennington pattern of a Chinese lady in her garden underneath a willow tree, perhaps instructing her servant to bring her the bowl so she can put the branch she’s holding in it. The scene is surrounded by a border that’s commonly found with this kind of printed pattern at John Pennington’s factory. The porcelain has the normal surface flaws that are found on the wares from this factory, unevenness of glaze and roughness, tiny black speckles, etc., but there’s no damage to either piece. The saucer is a little over six inches across. The transfer prints show good depth and color.
