Rare Antique Tucker Porcelain Set, Hand Painted Landscapes #1174, Museum Quality For Sale
This is a wonderful and rare set of Tucker Porcelain. There is a large teapot and lid, a covered sugar bowl with an underplate or liner, a cream pitcher, a waste bowl, a serving plate and 8 cups and saucers. Five of the cups are tea cups and 3 are smaller demitasse or coffee cups. The saucers are all the same size. All of the pieces are decorated with hand painted landscapes. The landscapes go all the way around each piece including the saucers. There is a pale gray sky with trees, buildings, hills and gray mountains in the background. Most of the pieces are in excellent, undamaged condition. The condition issues that I have found are:1. The knop or handle at the top of the lid of the teapot must have broken off years ago and was fixed with solder that is visible on the underside. Cracks are visible on the top; 2. A small chip on the inside rim of the sugar bowl that is not visible with the lid in place and a crowfoot crack that is stable; 3. One of the saucers has a shallow 1/4" chip; 4. There is wear to the gilding, especially on the handle to the teapot and on the edges of the bowl and saucers. Most of the pieces are marked "1174" in gold on the base. In some cases, part of this number have worn off. The teapot is 10 & 1/2" from the back of the handle to the tip of the spout and about 6" tall with the lid on. The inside is clean. There is wear to the gilding. The knop on the lid has been repaired with solder. The covered sugar bowl is 6 & 1/2" from handle to handle and about 4 & 1/2" tall with the lid on. It has a small chip on the inside rim and a stable crowfoot crack. The liner or underplate is 7 & 1/4" by 5 & 3/4" with a little wear to the gold. The cream pitcher is 6 & 1/4" long and 4 & 1/4" to the top of the handle with wear to the gold on the handle. The waste bowl is 3 & 1/8" tall and 6 & 1/4" across the top with wear to the gold on the rim. The serving plate is 8 & 3/8" across and the rim is 1 & 1/8" high. The saucers are all 5 & 1/4" across. One has a shallow 1/4" long chip. All have wear to the gold on the edges. There are five large cups that are 2 & 1/4" tall and 3 & 1/2" across the bowl with wear to the gold on the handles and edges. There are three smaller cups that are about 2 & 3/8" tall and 2 & 3/4" across the bowl with minor wear to the gold.This is a fabulous and beautiful set that is of museum quality.
