On offer is a colorful pair of English porcelain teabowls and saucers in what looks like a bone china body that are similar to others in decoration that I have seen from Liverpool and especially from the Herculaneum factory. These would date to about 1810. The decoration is a batprinted scene with green enamel painted over it and with a puce color rim border pattern. These are very colorful pieces in a style not commonly seen. The top of the rims have very fine mercury gilding as expected and there are no identifying marks on the items.
Dimensions: The diameter of the saucer is 5 1/2" and the height 1 1/8". The cup is 3 1/4"in diameter and 2 1/16" high.
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips or cracks and there is no restoration to any piece. The colors are good, the prints are sharp and clear, and the glaze is smooth and unworn. There is only a tiny, hard to see kiln nib to the rim of one cup from when it was made as shown.
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.
