EARLY WORCESTER BLUE & WHITE WORKMAN'S MARK FLUTED COFFEE CUP, THE PRUNUS ROOT PATTERN BFS I.D.27 C.1756
"A rare early Worcester blue and white English Porcelain fluted coffee cup of small proportions dating from c.1756. The attractive Prunus Root pattern was continued until the 1780's on 18th century Worcester porcelain. Earlier versions are considered to be the best, hand painted with more care. Although we have seen several examples of this early potting shape on teabowls - including the Bernard Watney collection - we have yet to come across another coffee cup. A piece for the connoisseur collector." Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.
 
References: Examples of the Prunus Root pattern can be found in all the major published works on Worcester porcelain.
Dimensions: height 53 mm max.
Marks: workman's mark as illustrated dating 1753-60.
Condition: The piece is excellent overall. There is a tiny chip to rim and associated small hairline, visible on close inspection but easily missed at first glance.
