A very smart John Rose Coalport porcelain coffee can with a deep frieze with a stylised oriental theme of flying red birds and orange peonies with a gilt willow tree and set against a gilt and purple foliate and floral background. Framed with gilt bands and gilt decoration down the handle. Unmarked c.1805.
Reference: This pattern is illustrated on a group of tea wares of slightly later shape in plate 58 of Coalport & Coalbrookedale Porcelains by Godden but no pattern number is noted.
It measures 6.5cm (2 1/2") high and 7cm (2 3/4") rim to rim.
Condition is very good with no damage or repair and minor handling wear to the gilt in a couple of places.
