This gorgeous porcelain fluted cup and saucer has the "Old English Handle" and dates c. 1825-30. It was made by John Yates of Shelton, (Hanley) Staffordshire. It matches the example shown on page 131, plate 781 of Michael Berthoud's " A Compendium of British Cups". The pattern number painted on the bottom of each piece "1307" also correlates to the Yates numbering system.
The cup diameter is 3-3/4", and the height is 2". Both pieces are in very good condition, with no wear to the gilding or decoration. There are no chips, and no cracks which I can see or feel. However, neither piece rings when tapped.
