Offered is an English porcelain serving set with pink lustre and red overglaze transferprinted floral decoration. The set consists of two lunch plates, a creamer, and a waste bowl. These were done in bone china, and would date from 1830-1860. The creamer is in rococco form, has a serpent bite handle, popular at this time, and the lustre trim is of a wider type typical of this period. The two plates and the waste bowl are in more of a London shape and, with the creamer, show a transition from one form to the other as is seen in sets from the 1830's.
Dimensions: Waste bowl is 6 1/8" in diameter and 3 1/4" high. Plates are a hair under 8" in diameter and 1 1/8 high. The creamer is 3 1/2" high at the handle and 5 1/4" from handle to spout.
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips, cracks, and there is no restoration to the pieces. The glaze on all is good, shiny, the lustre has no wear and the transfer print is clear with no wear. One plate has a manufacturing kiln mark on the bottom as shown, the other has stilt marks on the bottom, all as expected for these early items. The creamer is of a very a slightly different shade of white, hardly discernible, and was probably always that way. All are perfectly usable.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
