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.
