On offer is a yellow glazed creamware cup and saucer from the 1820's. The decoration is a black transferprint of a woman playing the piano and two children. The transfer is overglaze and the bottom of the foot rim shows the lighter color of the creamware of which it is made. Especially popular here in the US during the federal period, these yellow-glazed items are popular with collectors today.
Dimensions: The height of the cup is about 2 1/2" and the diameter is 3 1/4". The diameter of the saucer is 5" and the height is 1".
Condition: There are no chips, cracks or repairs and the print is very sharp and clear. The yellow color is strong and the glaze is smooth with a hint of very faint kiln speckles (not really visable on display) on the saucer from when it was made. There is an in-the-making short glaze line about 3/16" off the inside rim that does not go through and is hard to photograph.
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.
