This hand painted porcelain coffee can is decorated onglaze with a rural scene of a figure walking past a ruined archway. It is unmarked and attributed to the Liverpool factory of Herculaneum. It stands 64mm high and has a diameter of 68mm. This corresponds with plate 283 of Michael Berthoud's "A compendium of British cups". It also matches examples in books on Herculaneum by Alan Smith and Peter Hyland. It has a faint hairline crack to the base, a small chip to the rim and it has also lost some gilding to the rim. There is also a faint firing crack where the top of the handle meets the body which has been glazed over in the final firing. C 1812-15.
