Very pretty Worcester trio comprising tea cup, coffee cup and saucer, of fluted form with scalloped rims and decorated in the imari style in iron red and dark blue and with gilt accents. White panels painted with bold floral displays separated by blue bands with gilded cross-hatched decoration and daisy type flowers. The saucer rim and inner rims of the cups decorated with a blue band with gilded scroll frieze.
Provenance: The Tim Olney Collection.
The tea cup measures 3 3/8" rim to rim, 4 1/2" handle to rim and 2" high. The coffee cup measures 2 3/8" rim to rim and 3 1/4" handle to rim and 2 1/2" high. The saucer is 5 1/4" wide and 1 1/4" deep.
Condition is very good: there is a small nick to the outside rim of the coffee cup. Otherwise no damage or restoration, light surface wear and the foot of the tea cup has a firing fault to a section of the glaze.
