Beautiful Worcester Dr. Wall period style scale blue porcelain vase / canister / tea poy decorated with colorful exotic birds, insects and foliage in gilt-edged, white reserves. Scale blue was one of Worcester's most desirable patterns and it was achieved by painting an overall blue wash, letting it dry and then painting over it, in blue, triangular "fish scale" shapes. It is marked on the underside with an under the glaze blue square seal mark numbered 88 in the Chaffers Marks book under ' Marks used on Worcester Porcelain during the "Doctor Wall" period, from 1751 to 1783. ' We have seen somewhat similar shaped pieces in museum collections described as tea poy (with a slightly longer neck in white). This piece is, most likely, a later date version of the scale blue exotic bird pattern by a different maker. In very good used condition with minor imperfections as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: 5.5" tall (15 cm) approximately.
