I give full condition reports for each item, please feel free to contact me for further details. A Rococo revival trio consisting of a teacup, saucer and tea plate, made by Samuel Alcock at the famous Hill Pottery in Burslem around 1840. The cup, saucer and plate have a gilt pattern on a clotted cream ground with an ornate cup handle and gilded rims. Alcock bone-china is of good quality, well potted and often very richly decorated.
In 1833 the factory employed more than 400 people and their 20 kilns equalled those in use by Minton. Most of Alcock's useful porcelains of 1830-40 are unmarked that is why the firm is so little known. Tea set pattern # 6780.
1 Teacup - 6.5 cm diameter x 7.3 cm high. 1 Saucer - 14.5 cm diameter. 1 Plate - 17.5 cm. Excellent condition, no damage, normal wear - 180 years old.
PLEASE LOOK AT ALL PHOTOS.
