Reference: Worcester Blue & White Porcelain 1751-1790, Branyan, French & Sandon, section II.C.II

It measures 17.8cm (7") by 15cm (5 7/8") wide and 7.2cm (2 7/8") high.

Condition is very good with no body damage or restoration. At either end, there are some minor losses to the leaves and petals at the handle terminals. There are 3 flowers absent from the top row on the outside walls but they are clearly missing from manufacture as these areas are fully overglazed. There is a small erroneous bit of clay stuck on the inside on the base. Minimal handling wear.
