H&R Daniel Coffee Cup, White, Grey with Printed Flowers, Rococo Revival, ca 1838

$335per set

About the Item

This is a beautiful coffee cup set made by H&R Daniel in about 1838. The cup is quite large and has a beautiful bell shaped shape and the pattern number 6676. The H & R Daniel porcelain factory was founded by Henry Daniel, son of a family of master colour makers. He headed up the decoration department in the famous Spode factory where he oversaw all the beautiful early Spode decorations. In 1822 he opened his own factory with his son Richard, creating a truly iconic body of work with the most subtle colours and beautifully painted flowers and landscapes. The Daniel factory was the last true cottage industry among the English potteries, resisting the increase of industrialisation and mass production. This resulted in extraordinary and unrivalled quality, but it probably also led to the factory having to close its doors in 1846 because it could no longer compete with others who did modernise. Daniel porcelain can be hard to identify as the factory was only around for about two decades, and Daniel items have therefore become true collectors' items. This set is finely potted in very white and pristine porcelain and has the Second Bell Shape, which was made between 1837 and 1840. The pattern consists of very modest acanthus leaf swirls in grey around the rims, with some playful gilding. There are little flower sprays inside the cup and on the face of the saucer, which were printed in outline and then carefully hand coloured in fresh colours. The set is unmarked except the pattern number 6676, which dates it to about 1838. Condition report The set is in perfect antique condition without any damage, repairs or crazing, and only very minimal wear, as visible in the pictures. 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 (diameter) cup 9cm (3.5"); saucer 15.5cm (6").
