I recently purchased a large, though incomplete set of Barr period Worcester porcelain in a grape pattern. I will be selling items from this set in groups and individually.
These six small ring-handled coffee cups and saucers are banded with a grape and leaf design in deep brown (with purple cast), with tendrils and bands of gilt. Berthoud shows this shape and decoration in "Compendium of British Cups".
All cups and 5 saucers are marked with incised "B" (mark used 1792-1804)
Size: Saucers approximately 5.5" diameter, cups 2.625" diameter, 2.875"high (some slight variations among pieces)
Condition: Cups are excellent, with only some wear to gilt rims, some saucers have wear to gilt and paint, but overall, good. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
