This opulent porcelain cup and saucer was produced by Sir James Duke and Nephews during the 19th century, circa 1862. Sir James Duke and Nephews produced high quality Etruscan ware, parian ware and porcelain from the Hill Pottery, Staffordshire, England. The pottery was formerly owned by Samuel Alcock and Co who ran the factory from 1828 – 1859. Sir James Duke and nephews ownership period was very short, from the year 1860 – 1863. This makes this cup and saucer rare and desirable for a collector.
The porcelain has excellent transparency. Each of the pieces feature hand painted gilt flowers and foliage upon a rich crimson ground, the quality of the gilding is outstanding. Each of the bases features a hand painted pattern number mark reading ‘6/557’. The pair will display excellently, this is an attractive pattern and we have not found another example. This is the perfect piece for anyone who collects rare porcelain.
