Lot Essay

Each teabowl and each saucer of the present service share a common print source and are inspired by Meissen porcelain. The decorator has varied each scene slightly but the overall similarities of each element proves that this service is a rare, almost intact survivor from the period. See F. Severne Mackenna, Chelsea Porcelain, The Triangle and Raised Anchor Wares (London, 1948), pl. 49, no. 98.
