Guest Book
A very charming and lovely pearlware loving cup of trumpet bowl atop round pedestal and having two attached strap handles. The white body is glazed with blue and red floral motifs enhanced with golden leafage. The rim is decorated with blue and red checkered wrap, and the foot ringed with cobalt blue line. The condition is generally excellent with the exception of a very small nick on the rim which we show in the photo. Height is 5 1/2" The underside is glazed and unmarked. We estimate the dating to c. 1780 making this wonderful cup a treasure from the very earliest days of pearlware production.
