Please view my pictures of actual item above as part of my description and for a better idea of condition. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to request additional photos. Rare find from estate sale!This is a beautiful porcelain teacup and saucer made by Flight, Barr & Barr between 1813 and 1840 - but most probably circa 1815, which was the Regency era. Peach ground gold gilt leaf pattern.
This peach ground color is rare as it was very difficult to produce; if the kiln temperature was only slightly too high or too low, the color would come out an ugly brown and the items would have to be thrown away. Given that kilns were fired on coal fires, you can imagine how hard it was to achieve this beautiful color and it would only have been done for the most exclusive sets. The pinched handle is typical for Flight and Barr.
Meaning free from cracks chips repairs or crazing. No signs of use for example (utensil marks, scuffs, stains, gold loss or pattern wear). Which leads me to believe this set was for display only as part of a collection.
