This is a very good hard paste porcelain early Coffee Can or cup with a loop handle, hand decorated in the Royal Lily pattern by Worcester during the Barr period, fully marked to the base and dating to circa 1792 - 1807.


The piece is well potted with a tapering bucket shaped body, with no foot rim and a loop handle. The pattern is hand painted in the "Royal Lily" pattern, with a series of hand painted vertical lilies in cobalt blue, with mazarine & gilt borders to upper and lower rims and a red/brown upper rim. A nice feature of this early cup is that it is also hand painted to the inner base, with additional gilding to the outer handle. A very similar cup by Worcester in the same pattern is illustrated on Page 75 in the book A Compendium of British Cups by Michael Berthoud .


The base has a scratched "B" to the base indicating it was potted in the Worcester Barr period , Circa 1800.
