This is a very rare Mason's ironstone miniature Coffee Pot in the Gold Rose Japan gilded pattern, which we date to circa 1820. Miniature or toy items of Masons ironstone are hard to find today.
This piece is well potted as a Coffeepot with a tapered body, side handle, pouring spout and complete with a lid having a knob top.
The piece is decorated in the detailed Chinoiserie pattern called " Gold Rose Japan " which is beautifully hand painted in bold enamels and rich hand gilding as illustrated on page 157 of Mason's pattern book published by the Mason's collectors club. The pot is unmarked but is definitely by Mason's, with other miniature pieces illustrated on page 180 of Godden's guide to Mason's China and the Ironstone Wares, written by Geoffrey A. Godden and published by The Antique Collectors' Club.
Overall a beautiful rare piece of early Masons Ironstone for the cabinet.
