A wonderfully attractive porcelain tea cup that 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 at widest point 4 2/8” (11 cm). Cup height 2.5” (6.5 cm). Saucer diameter 5.75” (14.5 cm).

Condition: Both pieces are in sound condition. There is some surface wear to the gilding on the cup rim; the gilded circle on the interior base of the cup has worn away. There is a 0.5” fine hairline to the interior rim by the handle and on the interior side facing it 0.75”, both are very hard to see under normal lighting conditions, certainly too fine for our camera to pick up. There is a thin and fine 1.5” hairline to the base of the saucer running from the foot rim to the outer rim.

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 taller, narrower coffee cup and saucer in this same pattern.
