Lovely set of ten early 19th Century English printed porcelain lusterware / lustreware cups and saucers decorated with strawberry luster trim and pink / puce / magenta printed scenes of mother and child and country scenes. Unmarked as early pieces often were. We have seen similar items described as pearlware made in Staffordshire, England circa early to mid 1800's. The printed decor is inspired by Adam Buck, a Regency illustrator and miniature painter. In the 19th Century luster / lustre tea sets were often displayed under gaslights on mirrored trays to enhance their metallic sheen. In very good used condition with minor wear to paint and imperfections from the time of manufacture as shown. Matching teapot, creamer, open sugar and pair of bowls listed separately. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: Saucer: 5 1/2" diameter; Cups: 3 1/4" top diameter by 2 1/4" tall approximately.
Mostly 19th Century Art and Antiques
