A “Salopian” pearlware coffee service: nine cups and saucers, coffee pot, cream jug and slop bowl. Transfer printed decoration and underglaze painting in yellow, light red, blue and green of flower borders and a romantic view of a farm house with cows, meadows and wanderers. The cups of generous bute shape with "London” handles, and inside each cup a very small cottage is to be admired. There is a blueish tone to the white glaze. The service, unmarked, was made in Staffordshire around 1810, even if the term “Salopian” really refers to another part of England (Salops was the Roman name for Shropshire). The height of the coffee pot including lid is "10 ¼ / 26.5 cm, the diameter of the slop bowl "6 ¼ /15.8 cm and of the saucers "5 ¼ / 13.5 cm. Condition: minimal wear around the spout of the coffee pot and some of the cups and saucers with crackling and stains to the glaze (cf. pics).
