Antique English Soft Paste Porcelain Liverpool Coffee Pot 18th Century
We are pleased to offer this rare Liverpool soft-paste porcelain coffee pot made in England in the late 18th century, circa 1785. The pot is painted with a lovely chinoiserie scene on both sides of the body. In the scene, a lady stands in front of a blossoming plum tree. She offers a basket of sweets to two boys.
The artisan skillfully integrated chinoiserie figures into the design to add exotic appeal in an era when China was still a distant land of mystery. Dimensions: 10.5″ tall x 8.5″ deep x 5″ wide. Condition: Very good with a single fine short hairline (see images).
