A rare and very attractive Caughley tea canister beautifully decorated with a large blue and white print of the oriental 'Temple' pattern, c1785. It is unfortunately missing its cover, but the tea canister itself is superb.

This very elegant tea canister is of a 'barrel' shape with vertical moulded lines and of excellent proportions. It is made of soft-paste porcelain and is typical of the shape popular at the end of the eighteenth century. This delightful tea canister has been charmingly decorated and is beautifully marked with the Caughley underglaze 'S' mark dating it to c1785.

The decoration is underglaze blue with an extremely clear print of the 'Temple' pattern. The pattern is of an oriental scene, with a temple and a person crossing a stone bridge on horseback shaded by a man with a parasol. Other characters are to be seen within this pleasant scene, including a man in a sailing boat.

Around the outer rim of plate is a 'Nan king' style blue decorative border.
