Antique English Imari Cup & Saucer. Ca.1805.
An antique English Imari or "Japan" pattern cup and saucer, circa 1805. Unmarked. Imari colors of underglaze blue with overglaze cobalt blue, iron red, green, and gilt accents. There is a small firing flaw to the rim of the cup (see enlargement 6) and the saucer has a surface 1 inch hairline which is on the underside rim of the saucer and does not go through to the front decoration. The gilt shows some wear but still a bright and attractive early example. The saucer measures 5 1/2 inches in diameter. The cup measures 2 5/8 inches in height.
