This pretty cup and saucer set was made about 1825 by John Rose & Co., Coalport. The ornate handle is very distinctive. Like most Coalport porcelains of this period, it is unmarked.
The Coalport "Pembroke" shaped cup with gadroon border can be found twice in Berthold's "Compendium of British Cups". It is shown on page 126, plate 751, and again on Color Plate 6 (a). If you have Michael Messenger's "Coalport" you can see this cup shape on page 180, plate 133.
The cup is 2-1/2" high. The shaped saucer is 5" in diameter.
Both pieces are in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no wear to the gilding, and no repairs. However, neither piece rings when tapped.
