This beautiful coffee can dates c. 1805. It is made of New Hall's Hybrid-Hard Paste Porcelain.
The condition is excellent. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. There is no wear to the gilding around the lip, the base, or the handle.
The can rings when tapped. This is as close to "mint" as I've seen for a long time.
The pattern is New Hall's # 446, known as "Imari Vine". Here is the description of the pattern from "A Guide to New Hall Porcelain Patterns" by Anthony de Saye Hutton: "Gold edge and border lines. A mazarine blue stunted tree with orange fruits and dotted orange leaves all heavily outlined in gold." It is also illustrated in his colour plate K,
This can is not marked, as was typical, except for a small red squiggle (a tally mark) on the base.
