Here is a collection of pieces of porcelain from the New Hall factory, decorated in their lively pattern 2054—probably the remnants of a large tea set. Included are a sugar bowl and lid, two plates, three cups and seven saucers, a waste bowl and a creamer. They are very attractively painted with cobalt blue grounds and oval flower bouquets set against white reserves. The blue backdrop has gilded accents. The larger plate is eight and three-quarter inches across, the smaller is eight inches. The waste bowl is six and one-quarter inches across and three and a half inches high. The cups, large plate, waste bowl and four saucers are perfect with no wear. The sugar has a hairline in the bottom, two chips to the interior flange, and the finial has been reattached. The creamer has a reglued section under the spout, with a chip filled in with modern epoxy for stability. One saucer has been broken apart and reglued and two saucers have hairlines in the bottom. The smaller plate has a large repainted area on the rim, which indicates repair—probably a section broken out and reglued (see the top of the plate in the photo, the section with the yellow daffodil). The repair is good and I don’t see any need to redo it.
