A very stylish late 18th century Chamberlain- Worcester porcelain coffee can and saucer. Tapering shape with spiral fluted double ribs. Decorated in pattern 61, a bold underglaze blue border inside the cup and saucer rim, over-painted with a detailed gilt pattern of daisy flowers set inside blue ovals framed with gold striped panels and dropping gold foliage. The saucer also has a striking gold patterned centre.
The cup is marked "No 61" in puce.
The cup measures 6.5cm (2 1/2") high, 9cm (3 1/2") rim to handle and 6.7cm (2 5/8") rim to rim. The saucer measures 14.5cm (5 3/4) wide and 3cm (1 1/4") high.
Condition is very good with no damage or restoration. Surface wear is light, just a little rubbing to the gilding in a couple of spots and there are a few craze lines on the inside of the cup.
