CAUGHLEY PORCELAIN MINIATURE (TOY) PART TEA SERVICE
England, c1780, "Island" Pattern

 

 

 

A scarce service of 18th century miniature porcelains teawares,

consisting of 21 pieces :

 

Three Trios ( Saucer, Coffee Cup & Teabowl)
Four Large Oval Serving Dishes
Two Smaller Oval Serving Dishes
Pair of Small Dishes and a Saucer

 

Each hand painted in underglaze blue with a central island issuing fern-like trees sided by two pagodas,

below a circular sun and birds, the larger pieces with two sampans in the foreground,

(the sampans omitted randomly in some of the wares);
all within loose lambrequin type borders

 

Condition : Excellent; the single saucer with two small rim chips

 

Note :
The Island Pattern was introduced by Caughley in the late 1770's, and made until about 1790-5.
Unlike the Pleasure Boat pattern, it was hand painted on very high quality porcelain.
The pattern was designed for miniatures alone, and often the sizes vary,
and are out of scale to their full sized correspondents – particularly the round dishes.
The earlier teawares are smaller than the average and in a less bright blue tone.
These have become increasingly difficult to obtain.
We are pleased to offer you this small collection

Trios : Saucer 2-7/8" (2) / 2-1.2" with C mark (1) ;
