1st Period Worcester Dr. Wall

Worcester Porcelain ‘Hop Trellis’ Teabowl and Saucer, circa 1770

A fine Worcester porcelain teabowl and saucer, circa 1770. Both fluted items, beautifully decorated in Sèvres style, with continuous bands of berries growing on vine, suspended from trellis. Having turquoise ‘scale’ borders, heightened with gilding.
Measures: Height of teabowl 3.5 cm, 1 1/2”.
Diameter of saucer 12.2 cm, 4 3/4”.
Condition: Small chip to the reverse of the saucer. Typical minor wear to the gilding. Please see images for detail. No restoration.

This pattern, used at Worcester from circa 1770-1780, is based on that used at Sèvres, in the previous decade. Whilst the design on the current example, clearly does not depict hop bines, the name has been associated with this and variants of the pattern since the 19th century, when the hop growing industry in Worcestershire, was at its height.
