In the 1770s, there emerged a great popularity for the early British dinnerwares in

underglaze printed blue flowers.

As well, the public now desired matching sets.

With the new "transfer-printed" method (introduced by Worcester in 1756),

these wares could be produced is a less time-consuming and therefore more affordable manner.

Slowly Worcester's output began to be dominated by just a few patterns -

"Pinecone" being one of the two most requested.


Most Pinecone wares bear the underglaze crescent mark.

However, the script W mark was used on some Pinecone pieces between 1770 and 1775.


As well, the scalloped rim is more unusual than the lobed form.
