On offer is a creamware tea bowl and saucer with the floral King's Rose decoration dating from around 1770 to 1780. The items are light with a turning mark on the back and a greenish yellow glaze,all as expected on a period piece. This was a very common form of decoration on creamware in the 18th century.
Dimensions: Height of tea bowl is just under 2"and the diameter is 3 7/16". The Saucer is 5" in diameter and height is just under 1 1/2".
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips or cracks and there is no discoloration. The glaze is smooth and unworn and the enamel decoration is bright and unworn. The cup has a tiny in the making kiln mark just about seen in the interior 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.
