Worcester Part Desert Service Ca. 1820

England Ca. 1820

Worcester Desert Service of the highest quality from the Barr, Flight and Barr period. I just recently repurchased this group.

When I first saw this set all I could think of was “thrilling”. The set was made by Worcester in the period of Barr Flight & Barr and Flight, Barr & Barr markings era as the pieces are impressed “BFB” and with the printed mark displayed in one photo here. The colors are dazzling and the pattern is complicated. It consists of a pair of covered sauce tureens, a pair of sauce dishes, and 14 desert plates (8 1/8″). The design is topped off with a family crest of a rooster on a heraldic device and a banner above which reads “SEMPER VIGILANS” (always watching). The condition is about as close to perfect as you will find.

Price

$10,500

Condition

Excellent. Nearly perfect except for three tips of the sauce tureen finials, a few very slight chips, minuscule stacking wear and 99% of the gold is as bright as the day it was made.
