Set six antique J&W Ridgway porcelain coffee cans floral pattern circa 1825 - Late Georgian Regency Fluted Old English or Royal pattern 7.3cmH 8.2cmD
A set of six beautifully decorated English porcelain coffee cans ornately gilded and hand painted with three equally spaced polychrome floral sprays and a central pink rose. The ornate gilding consists of a hexagonal central section linked with three trailing grape vines with leaves and tendrils emanating from a band of nine crescent scrolls with "eyelashes" surmounted with "four leaf clover" and dots and an outer band.
Although there is no makers marks nor pattern number on them, these coffee cans were originally from an "Fluted Old English" or "Royal" pattern tea service that was made by John and William Ridgway of the Cauldon Place Works, Shelton (Hanley) in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, England circa 1825. Please see the bowl and coffee cans listed separately.
The cups are all in excellent antique condition with no chips cracks nor restoration, with the exception of one having a short crack opposite the handle. These are a very decorative set of antique porcelain coffee cans for any collector of Ridgway or Regency to late Georgian period English porcelain from the early 19th century.
