Pretty and unusually decorated early Worcester tea cup and saucer with a wet blue ground with simple rounded white reserves painted with flowers in Compagnie des Indes style in a delicate palette of pink, purple, green and turquoise with a touch of orange. Restricted gilded decoration, scalloped edges to the reserves and feathery leaves and graduated lines up the underside of the handle terminals.
Crescent mark to the base of both pieces and provenance stickers for the Whitehouse Collection, number 405.
The saucer measures 13cm (5 1/8") wide and 2.7cm (1 1/16") high. The cup measures 5cm (2") high, 8cm (3 1/8") rim to rim and 10cm (4") rim to handle.
Condition is very good with no damage or restoration. There is a bit of surface wear in places, mainly to the rim of the cup and there was a floral spray painted inside the cup base that is very worn. Otherwise very light bar a little wear to the gilding on the saucer.
