Here is a splashy and boldly decorated set of teacup and its saucer in a style that was all the rage in England after about 1810. Based on the Japanese Imari style, thousands of designs were produced by the British porcelain factories in compelling colors of bright red, dark cobalt blue and gilding. Touches of green were sometimes added, as here, and in the middle of the stylized flower and leaf design is a little surprise—a colorful butterfly in the center of the saucer! I guess it shows that the British designers could sometimes be a little playful. The intricate gilding shows off splendidly against the blue, making for a very impressive sight. The saucer is five and a half inches across. Condition is excellent, with only slight gilt wear.
