This porcelain tea cup and saucer was produced in England by Spode around 1800. The saucer is 5 5/8 inches in diameter and it is 1 1/2 inches deep. The cup is 2 1/4 inches high. The cup has the London shape. The ground color is a soft pink. There are reserves inside the cup and around the saucer containing colorfully hand painted birds. They are reminiscent of bird decorations done by the Derby factory. They are encased in gilded cartouches. These alternate with segments of intricate gilding. Condition: There is slight wear to the gilding in the well of the saucer and traces of wear around the rim. This cup and saucer is in amazing condition for its age. Both pieces ring when tapped.
