  • First Period Worcester Teapot Painted Underglaze Blue Mansfield Pattern c-1765

    $1,220.00

    In the 18th century, circa 1765, this delightful teapot was hand-painted in cobalt blue in the Worcester factory. The teapot dates to the First Period of the Worcester factory also known as the Dr. Wall Worcester period named for the doctor who ran the Worcester factory during its first period. The decoration on the teapot is the ‘Mansfield’ pattern, a loose floral design painted in underglaze cobalt blue. The shape of the teapot is a simple sphere with a molded loop handle and a well-balanced pouring spout. The pretty cover of the teapot is also painted with cobalt blue. It is beautifully finished with a delightful flower finial. The flower has a stem from which we see two raised molded leaves. The shoulder of the teapot, the rim of the cover, and the elegantly shaped spout all have blue decorative borders. The Mansfield pattern was one of Worcester’s most popular early patterns.

    Dimensions: 7.5″ long x 4.5″ at the widest point x 6″ tall to the top of the finial. Price: $1220

    Condition: The teapot and cover are in excellent condition with no cracks or restoration. The edges of the flower finial have faint, tiny burn marks from when the glaze slipped off the top edge in the making of the cover. The minor imperfections are tiny chips to the inside of the cover (shown in image #11).

  • Worcester Porcelain Sauceboat, Made in England, Mid-18th Century

    $720.00

    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.

    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.

    Dimensions: 9.5″ long x 4.75″ wide x tall 5.5

    Condition: Excellent. In this sauceboat, there is a small original firing line in the foot. 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.

    Mario loved flowers and he loved well-painted flowers on porcelain.

    This pair of Ludwigsburg dishes was made in Germany circa 1780. The outstanding quality of the hand-painted flowers is their exquisite liveliness.

    The material is hard-paste porcelain.
