This lovely cup and saucer was made by Samuel Alcock, Burslem, c.1820-25, with his unique "Melting Snow" border around the outside rim of the cup, and the interior rim of the saucer.

Porcelain of this vintage by Alcock was almost never signed. This set does not even give us a pattern number to go by. Fortunately, the distinctive molded handle and "melting snow" molding can be found on page 124 of "A Compendium of British Cups", by Michael Berthoud. He identifies it as Alcock, and dates this shape 1820-25.

The condition of the cup is excellent. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, no repairs, no wear to the gilding.

The saucer's condition is very good. There are no chips, no cracks, no repairs and no wear to the gilding. There is fading of the color of the flower in the center. Both pieces ring when tapped.

The cup is 2-3/4" high. The saucer is 5-1/2" in diameter.
