Rare Miniature Pearlware Childs Toy Handleless Cup & Saucer

PEONY FLOWER

Staffordshire, England c. 1820

This is a superb miniature transferware teabowl or handleless cup and saucer. Originally part of a child's complete tea set, the Chinese shaped cup stands a tiny 1 3/8" tall and the saucer measures 3 5/8" across the top rim. The color is a rich and earthy Van Dyke brown with a pearlware glaze. The piece is impeccably potted and light bodied, with a pearlware glaze. The central motif depicts a stylized sweet pea flower on a vine, undulating out from the center and set off with a kaleidoscope of floral swirls around the rim, leaving very little white space. The bold border decoration is placed delicately along the inside rim of the cup.

The set is unmarked. The exact maker and the pattern name is unknown. It is attributed to one of the great pottery makers in the Staffordshire district 1810-1825, or possibly Salopian.

The piece is in great condition with an old chip inside the foot of the cup and no other chips, cracks or repairs. Stilt marks on the edge, glaze ponding, typical firing imperfections. This is a rare set, with everything going for it, perfect for all the early pearlware transferware fanciers and collectors of the finest doll dishes. Offered as is.
