Very Early 19th Century Derby Porcelain Coffee Can Hand-Painted, circa 1800

About

This is a very collectable, hand-painted porcelain coffee can (cup) , made by Derby Porcelain Co., England in the George III period, circa 1800. The coffee can is straight sided and nominally 2.5 inches square excluding the handle. The handle is Derby's rare pointed ear shaped handle, only made by Derby. The can is hand-painted with a floral sprig design in the French manner with flowers in red and yellow with green leaves. The decoration has a continuous floral sprig swag border which loops beneath the upper rim, under a dark blue circle. The inside base also has a single hand-painted sprig with a red flower and green leaves. Part of the handle is hand gilded and there would have been a gilded rim originally which has mostly worn away with use. Derby Coffee cans and drinking cups of similar age, some with an ear shaped handle and similar sprig designs are shown on pages 270 to 288 of the reference book; Derby Porcelain by John Twitchett, published by the Antique Collectors' Club. The can is unmarked to the base but the pointed ear handle was only made by Derby. The base rim of the can has a "36" together with a small circle having a dot in it, which is probably the painter and / or gilders marks.
