Worcester Part Desert Service Ca. 1820.

England 1st quarter 19th century

When I 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.

Turk’s Head Covered Jar, 19th Century

This has been in my home for about 20 years. I’ve been hoping to see another one identified somewhere to no avail. It appears to be similar to some English Staffordshire products but all I will say is it is 19th Century made in Europe.
