A very rare Worcester blue and white mug c.1760-65

£300 - £500 £600

A very rare Worcester blue and white mug c.1760-65, the slightly tapering form printed with la Dame Chinoise design, an attendant holding a tall parasol over the head of a Chinese lady with another attendant beside, flanked by a tall vase of flowers and a gnarled willow tree, cracked, 12.2cm.

This pattern appears at Worcester in overglaze enamels (see Cyril Cook, The Life and Work of Robert Hancock, no.26) and is known on Derby and Bow porcelain. However, this appears to be the only recorded example of the pattern in underglaze blue at Worcester.
