This porcelain tea cup and saucer was produced in England between 1800 and 1815. It has no mark from the manufacturer but it may have been made by Minton or Coalport. The saucer has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches and is 1 1/8 inches deep. The cup is 2 1/2 inches high. The shape of the cup is known as a bute shape. The porcelain has a slightly grayish tinge to it. It is not pure white like the bone china produced in later years in England. The decoration is in the Imari style using brightly colored enamels to hand paint the bold designs. There are gilded accents within the decoration. The rims of the cup and saucer are trimmed with gold. There is some wear on the edge of the saucer and the rim of the cup. For a cup and saucer this age, the wear is quite minor. It is in otherwise excellent condition.
