Worcester 18th Century Porcelain Yellow Ground Basket

England Ca. 1765

A smallish Worcester basket from the earlier years of production. The pierced trellis pattern with applied flower heads, the inner surface with flowers on the rim and a floral spray center. The handles are naturalistic bent branches with delicate full flower heads and leaves. The exterior yellow color was first successfully developed by Worcester. A nearly identical example is illustrated in Godden’s “British Porcelain, an Illustrated Guide” published in 1974 page 425.

Next Piece

Worcester Teapot, Ca. 1780

An attractive late 18th century gold and white teapot, though unmarked is undoubtedly a product of the Worcester manufactory. The ribbed barrel form is decorated with gold swags. This would make a very good shelf piece at a low cost as one side has had the gold heavily rubbed.
