Sets such as this were far more common in the 18th century than they are now. The pieces made for everyday use, like this one, tended to get broken and discarded in higher percentages than the richly decorated ones. This set is in wonderful condition, decorated in puce monochrome in a very typical pattern borrowed from the Chinese. It has three spots of wear to the pattern in the saucer, hard to see, in places where the molded fluting was enameled over. The saucer is five and a quarter inches in diameter and bright and perky, and the cup is perfect and just as bright and perky. There are no chips or cracks and they are both well marked. A rare survivor.
