Offered is an English bone china porcelain sugar bowl and cover made by the Spode company from about 1810. The decoration consists of a transfer print of flowers using the bat print technique and is identified as pattern number 500 in the Spode pattern book. The bat print technique allows for very fine detail not really possible by the line engraved method most popularly in use at that time and before. The form is the new oval shape that was at its height in popularity about 1810.
Dimensions: The height is 4 3/4" to the top of the cover and the length is about 7" from handle to handle.
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips, cracks, or repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn. The bat print is sharp, clear, and without any wear and the gilding is excellent everywhere with no wear. It looks like it was 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.
