Offered is a very colorful English Porcelain cup and saucer and matching bowl made of bone china in the London form. These would date from the 1820's. The enameled decoration is of three Chinese figures in a courtyard. As is frequently found, it appears to be a courting scene with a girl and her mother addressing a suitor. It is possible that the mother does not approve of him, as he is leaving. the bottom is marked with pattern number 243 and the color and scene create a wonderful display.
Dimensions: The diameter of the bowl is 7 3/4" and the height is 1 1/2". The cup is 2 3/8" high and 2 5/8" in diameter. The saucer is 5 1/2" in diameter and 1 1/4" high.
Condition: Excellent. There are no cracks or chips other than a small nick on the back rim of the bowl and there is no restoration. The color is great, the enamel decoration is bright and colorful and not faded. The under-enamel transferprint is clear. The glaze is smooth.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing defect or repair. While this is normal and to be expected I note any known issues in the condition descriptions.
