An attractive tea bowl and saucer, printed with a delightful blue oriental scene of a pagoda in a charming landscape with houses, trees, a boat and a bridge with two figures crossing it. This beautiful tea bowl and saucer was made at the famous Caughley factory, c1785.

The tea bowl is of a scalloped shape with a scalloped gilded rim and raised upon a circular foot rim with a gilt band running round it. This very pretty tea bowl is beautifully decorated with a blue and white print of an oriental landscape which includes a large pagoda. There are islands with houses, rocks and trees. Between the islands sails a boat and there is a delightful oriental bridge crossing over the water. There are two figures to be seen crossing the bridge. The blue of this decoration is very vivid and rich in appearance.

 

   

Inside the rim of the tea bowl there is a decorative band of blue decoration. This is bounded by gilded lines.

 

 

The base of the tea bowl is marked only with a gilder's mark of '32'.

The saucer is exquisitely decorated with the same design as the tea bowl and coffee can and has the same scalloped and gilded rim. The quality of the blue and white landscape is wonderful, so very detailed and clear.

  

The base of the saucer is marked with the same Caughley 'S' mark with a gilder's mark '32'
