Coalport John Rose Tea Service, circa 1795

About

This is a beautiful tea service made by John Rose (Early Coalport) in circa 1795. The service consists of a lidded teapot, two cake plates, and three trios each consisting of a saucer, a teacup and a coffee cup. This little service would make a wonderful Christmas gift with true history and style. Coalport was one of the leading potters in 19th and 20th century, coming out with many innovative designs. The pottery emerged around the year 1795 in Shropshire, right on the edge of Staffordshire and near other great makers such as Spode, Minton, Davenport and many others. They went on to become a major potter in the 19th century and brought out many iconic designs. This service consists of a teapot of one design, and the cups and saucers are of a different design; however, all items are from the same period. They are all potted lightly in the slightly grey early Coalport porcelain from the John Rose period. The decoration consists of very Georgian, 18th Century simple gilt bands, the cups and saucers with a blue and gilt design. The cups are all fluted with 24 twisted flutes; the teapot is also fluted but not twisted. The set goes together beautifully though and may always have been together. Condition report The whole set is in very excellent condition without any damage, repairs or crazing. There is just rubbing to the gilt, as can be seen in the pictures. There are some glazing imperfections and blue smudges under the glaze - this is a very early English porcelain item and therefore imperfectly made. The items are unmarked, as is usual for the period. Antique British porcelain is never perfect. Kilns were fired on coal in the 1800s, and this meant that china from that period can have some firing specks from flying particles. British makers were also known for their experimentation, and sometimes this resulted in technically imperfect results. Due to the shrinkage in the kiln, items can have small firing lines or develop crazing over time, which should not be seen as damage but as an imperfection of the maker's recipes, probably unknown at the time of making. Items have often been used for many years and can have normal signs of wear, and gilt can have signs of slight disintegration even if never handled. I will reflect any damage, repairs, obvious stress marks, crazing or heavy wear in the item description but some minor scratches, nicks, stains and gilt disintegration can be normal for vintage items and need to be taken into account. There is widespread confusion on the internet about the difference between chips and nicks, or hairlines and cracks. I will reflect any damage as truthfully as I can, i.e. a nick is a tiny bit of damage smaller than 1mm and a chip is something you can easily see with the eye; a glazing line is a break in the glazing only; hairline is extremely tight and/or superficial and not picked up by the finger; and a crack is obvious both to the eye and the finger. Dimensions (to be added).
