Worcester Porcelain Sauceboat, Made in England, 18th Century

$720

About

Some of the most exquisite English porcelain ever made was manufactured in the 18th century by a factory in Worcester founded by a group of investors, including Dr. John Wall. In the 1750s, they began to manufacture soft-paste porcelain at their factory, ‘Worcester Tonquin Manufacture’" In the early years, virtually everything produced was functional like this sauceboat. By 1755 Worcester was making the best English blue and white porcelain tea wares that money could buy, as well as more expensive colored enamel sets. Porcelain was sold to the trade through a warehouse opened in Aldersgate Street, London in 1754 and through Samuel Bradley’s shop in Worcester High Street. This sauceboat is beautifully shaped and hand painted with a light green lettuce leaf pattern on its rim, small painted butterflies, sprigs of flowers, and a stock handle. The sauceboat is unmarked, as were many early Worcester pieces. Dimensions: 9.5" long x 4.75" wide x tall 5.5 Condition: Excellent with a small original firing line in the foot, which can be seen in image #12. This is typical of Chelsea Porcelain. Price: $720.
