RARE ENGLISH PORCELAIN COFFEE CUP, G.F. BOWERS PATTERN NUMBER 632 , JAPAN STYLE, CHINOISERIE DESIGN C.1848


"An attractive early Victorian English porcelain coffee cup of fine quality. Similar to pieces by the later Worcester and Coalport factories. A gem of a cup - Staffordshire made, by G.F. Bowers who produced fine china for a few short years c.1842-68. Pattern 632 is a striking printed and hand coloured Japan style chinoiserie inspiration. This unique 19th century cup shape design was registered by Bowers at the UK patent office in June 1848. A great and rare example for the discerning collector and display."
