This is the kind of mass-produced porcelain the New Hall porcelain factory excelled in, and they made hundreds of thousands of porcelain tea services in well over 3,000 different patterns, perhaps closer to 4,000. In fact, patterns are still being discovered! This is pattern 1084. In his book on New Hall wares, Geoffrey Godden describes this shape of cup as an adaptation of the London shape, dating this set most likely before 1820. The London shape of cup and saucer would normally have a three-part handle with an upturned point attached to a bute-shaped or flaring cup (with a simpler silhouette). This kind of ring handle is also fairly common, though not with this cup’s silhouette. The extremely thick application of the blue glaze is very unusual—it’s actually lumpy to the touch, very three-dimensional. The bone china is very translucent. This set in undamaged condition with only very slight wear. The saucer is fairly large at five and a half inches across.
