Antique Quality Pair Coalport Pembroke Shape Cups English Porcelain Circa 1825
This exquisitely detailed pair of cups are of the finest quality as they were produced by Coalport in England during the first quarter of the 19th century, circa 1825. Quality counts and this pair will not disappoint. Both cups feature a gadrooned gilt border, detailed hand painted floral sprays and a wonderfully ornate handle. Both cups are unmarked, as was common at Coalport during this early period. Both cups are also heavily gilded, we particularly like the C scroll borders. Please see Plate 751 and Colour Plate 6 (a) for the exact shape in “A Compendium Of British Cups by Michael Berthoud”. The examples shown in the book are also unmarked and were produced by Coalport.
Measuring: Tallest cup diameter with handle 4 1/8” (10.5 cm). Diameter 3 1/8” (8 cm). Height 2.5” (6.5 cm). Wider cup diameter with handle 4.5” (11.5 cm). Diameter 3.75” (9.3 cm). Height 2” (5 cm).
Condition: Both cups are in good condition for their vast age. The wider shorter tea cup has no restoration; there is the tiniest of shallow chips to one of the raised parts of the gadrooned border 1/16”. The hand painted design is bright and crisp, as is the gilding. The taller coffee cup is in good condition again free from restoration. However, there are three fine hairlines each approximately 0.75” and two barely visible tiny surface chips to the gadrooned border each less than 1/16”. The hand painted design is bright and crisp, as is the gilding. Our condition report is very thorough in the absence of the customer. Please be assured that the hairlines are very fine, hard to see and really do not detract at all from the beauty of this stunning pair.
