Here is your chance to make up your own cup and saucer set by selecting the landscape views you prefer. This set of many cups and saucers is by Coalport, circa 1860. The price is for one cup and one saucer. Each cup and saucer has two scenes, carefully hand-painted in colors, with the rims outlined with dentil gilding. All the scenes go well together, since they have the same palette, but the lettering on the bottom differs, so at least two artists were responsible for decorating the set. There are lakes, castles, crags, mountains, abbeys, etc. The specific names of the scenes are listed below this description. Scotland is very well represented, along with the rest of the UK. Every so often there’s a scene from the continent. How do you purchase? Decide on the cup(s) and saucer(s) you want. Then email me and ask to see photos of those specific pieces. (If the listing says SOLD, check again in a few days. As a sale is finalized, I'll open up the remaining pieces for sale again. As time goes on, I’ll delete the names of the ones that have been sold.) Of course, you can buy as many pairs as you like. You can even buy them all--ask for a discount! They have stickers on the bottom from a Christie’s auction in New York where they were sold at some point in their past. There is no pattern number or maker’s mark, but this is a typical Coalport shape. In the third quarter of the nineteenth century Coalport often did not mark its products in any way, and that’s when these were made. This was an era when painterly skill was highly esteemed on British porcelain, and the details of these views, which were taken from engravings or view books, bear witness to that artistic approach. Nearly every piece is in perfect condition, with no wear at all, except for the cup with Glengarriff and Ballynahinch—its handle has been reglued. One other cup has slight gilding wear on the rim. We can discuss condition via email. By the way, I have several other dishes from this Coalport set for sale on Ruby Lane.

Some names are repeated, but usually these are different scenes.
