Staffordshire Pearlware Miniature Handleless Cup ~ Birds Nest Dog Salopian C1820 For Sale
Miniature Pearlware Transferware
Handleless Cup or Tea Bowl
Staffordshire England c. 1820
This is a stunning miniature transferware cup, originally part of a
child's complete tea set. The tiny Chinese shaped cup stands 1 1/2" tall on
a raised pedestal base and measures 2 1/2" across the top rim. Made without a handle, as were most of the earliest tea
cups. The color is a rich Salopian style black transfer, with a hand painted cobalt blue edge and pearlware glaze. The piece was
impeccably potted and light bodied.
The little cup depicts a young man holding a birds nest being inspected by a girl with a dog. A tiny beaded inside edge with a bold yet delicate floral border trim finishes off the inner rim. The
image wraps full round the perimeter of the cup, with a prominent seam. The
decoration is very rich, with very little white space remaining.
The cup is unmarked. It was made in the Staffordshire potting egion, or possibly another potting center in UK in the
early to mid-19th century. The pattern name and maker is unknown.
The cup is in only fair condition with a reglued V shaped crack, nibbles on the foot and no other chips
cracks or repairs. Minor manufacturing imperfections original to the making.
A picturesque example, and a glorious addition to any collection.
