Antique Derby Porcelain Royal Flute Tea Cup & Saucer Puce Mark Patt. # 15 c 1785

 Antique Derby Porcelain Royal Flute Tea Cup & Saucer Puce Mark Pattern number 15 circa 1785

Here we have a highly collectable antique 18th century English Derby porcelain "Royal Flute" cup and saucer each marked with the puce Derby crown and baton mark dating from around 1785. This waisted cup and saucer is sometimes termed "Meissen" or "Tournai" shape. See plate 76, page 13 of a compendium of British cups by Michael Berthoud. 

Both the cup and saucer have an elegant decorated pattern of a thin cobalt blue band with a gilded "arrow head" and "sun" pattern further enhanced with gilded sprigs. It is marked on the base of each item as pattern number 15.  

The cup is 2 5/8 inches high by 2 3/4 inches diameter. The saucer has a diameter of 5 inches and the fluted curved sides stands 1 1/4 inches high. They weigh 212g unpacked. They are in very good antique condition. Saucer has a disguised glaze chip to the rim, some minor wear to the gilding. Please see the photographs. 

This is a great item for any collector of English 18th century porcelain cups and saucers or Derby porcelain.
