Here is a charming cup and saucer set made and decorated at the Caughley factory in England in the 18th century. It is in nearly perfect condition with no damage and no gilding wear. This pattern is known by many names and was extremely popular—most early porcelain factories made some version of it. It derives originally from Vincennes and Sevres porcelain in France. It’s also known as the Angouleme Sprig pattern or as Chantilly Sprig. The Caughley version has tiny blue and pink flowers with a green leaf and a gilded branch, with additional gilt bands. The cup also has a line of sprigs on the inside. This example has a label from the notable antiques department of the William Plummer store in NYC. The saucer is five inches across.


A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
