Minton Porcelain Collared French Shape Sucrier or Sugar Box ca 1827

A Minton porcelain ( bone china) sucrier or sugar box, made in their French Shape B, ( from the Minton shape book) with a peachy yellow coloured ground, which has a hand coloured transfer printed flower pattern. This reasonably rare, good quality, decorative and very collectable sugar box is unmarked other than a decorator's mark by one of the feet. It dates to around 1827 in the reign of George IV, the late Georgian period.

The sucrier is of a lobed round collared shape, sat on four moulded scroll feet, similar to a lion paw. There is acanthus leaf moulding above each foot. There are two ornate scroll ring type handles with leaf terminals and a line of three beads below them. The lobed domed lid has a stylised flower knob.

Thomas Minton and son Herbert ran a very successful pottery and porcelain business starting 1796, in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, England.

See plate 21 of Geoffrey Godden's Minton Pottery and Porcelain of the First Period 1793 - 1850 for an identical shaped sucrier and the original drawn design from the shape book.

An similar shaped teapot, with a different pattern, is illustrated in plate 1741, on page 291 of "A Directory of British Teapots" by Michael Berthoud and Richard Maskell.

This sucrier with lid is approximately 4 inches (127 mm) high, 6 5/8 inches 169 mm long and is 5 7/8 inches 149 mm diameter. It has a combined weight of 569 grammes unpacked.  

Item condition: Excellent antique condition. The body has a small chip to the inner rim for the lid , no other chips cracks nor restoration. Minor wear to the gilding. Please see the images. 

This is a great item to add to any collection of sugar boxes or sucriers, antique English early 19th century, late Georgian or Minton porcelain.
