Worcester porcelain teapot. Chinoiserie scenes.

An interesting Worcester porcelain teapot and cover, c. 1785. Vibrantly hand painted in famille rose style enamels, with a scene of Chinese figures in a garden setting, with urns of flowering plants - children playing with a rabbit. Flower painting to the spout and cover, which is surmounted by a flower head finial.
The style of painting is very similar to New Hall. Perhaps this was an attempt by Worcester to regain some of the market that they may have lost to New Hall, in the late 18th Century.

Medium: Porcelain.

Condition: Typical minor wear to the enamels. Otherwise in perfect condition. No damage. No restoration.
