Rare Scratch Cross Period Prunus Root Pattern Teapot and Cover c1753-54


Out of stock

A fine early Worcester blue and white teapot, hand decorated with the Prunus Root pattern c1753-54.

This pattern was used on Worcester porcelain spanning a period of 20/25 years from 1752. This example dates from c1753 with several factors indicating its early date,
The painting is of superb quality in a beautiful pale grey/blue colour and indicative of the early, so called “Scratch Cross” period. The base is also marked with an incised line, only ever found on wares of this early period. The foot rim is of shallow form and the shape of both spout and handle are again only to be found on early Worcester.

The Teapot measures 9.5cm in diameter including the handle and spout, and stands 14.2cm tall with the cover in place.

Excellent condition for age, with just a tiny chip to the rim of the cover and a chip and short hairline to the end of the spout. No restoration.

Both the base of the teapot and the inside of the cover are marked with an identical workman’s mark.

A truly wonderful example of early Worcester porcelain.
