On offer is a striking pair of pink resist lustre English porcelain cups and saucers. The unlustred "resist" portion of the broad lustre decoration contains very finely done vines along with leaves and grapes having orange enamel lines and dots. These are very thinly and delicately potted in bone china. From the handle form and also others of these I have seen these are possibly from the factory of Thomas Wolfe also known as Factory Z, although there are no identifying marks on the bottom of the pieces. The pair would date from about 1815 to 1825 and have a great appearance on display.
Dimensions: The cup is 2 3/16" high and 3 1/4" in diameter. The saucer is 1" high and just over 5 1/2" in diameter.
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn and even the tiniest detail of the vines is clear and unworn. The lustre is excellent with no wear throughout and just a hint of rubbing to a couple of spots on the tops of the rims. They look like they were never used.
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.
