On offer is finely gilded English bone china porcelain creamer in a modified London Shape. The decoration consists of band of flowers and leaves going continually around the piece. Many variations of the London shape were made with this squat form being one of the more common. This would date to the 1820's. On the bottom can be seen the pattern number 458. This piece fits in well with a display of gilded porcelain serving pieces.
Dimensions: The height to the top of the handle is 4". The length is 5 1/2" from handle to spout and the width is about 3 1/8".
Condition: Very good. There are no chips or cracks and no restoration. The glaze is smooth and unworn and the gilding is mostly unworn; there is just a little wear underneath to a double line border underneath the main decorative band. The inside base has slight discoloration.
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.
