Antique Samuel Alcock Tea Cup And Saucer English Porcelain Circa 1845
This decorative porcelain coffee can or tea cup was produced in England by Samuel Alcock and Co in the mid-19th century, circa 1845. Samuel Alcock And Co was well known for their fine porcelain with quality and detailed decoration, our example is no exception .The exterior features extensive gilt decoration and vibrant panels containing deep magenta pink, blue and green grounds. Both pieces are marked to the base in purple with the pattern number “1/3112”.Please see plate 1118 in “A Compendium Of British Cups by Michael Berthoud” for an identical example.
Measuring: Cup width including handle 3 5/8” (9 cm). Cup height 2.75” (7 cm). Saucer diameter 5.75” (14.5 cm).
Condition: Good and sound. The cup has a tiny black dot on the interior which is just a manufacturing fault and there is a difficult to see hairline to the rim near the handle 0.5”. There is some surface wear to the saucer.
This is a bright and vibrant matching cup and saucer in an uncommon but highly decorative pattern, the perfect piece for anyone who collects early English porcelain. Please see our other example of a shorter/wider tea cup in this pattern.
