Expert Hamilton Bear.
These and similar Chinese
porcelain tea-wares were commonly and incorrectly attributed to the
small but significant eighteenth century English Lowestoft porcelain
manufactory by nineteenth and earlier twentieth century collectors. It
is a style of
decoration much imitated by the late eighteenth and early
nineteenth century English porcelain makers.

A great display item. There is a small flat chip to the
rim of the
teabowl with associated faint hairline down the side of the bowl. Some rubbing wear to the onglaze polychrome enamels of the saucer. A
fine tight glaze hairline extends from saucer edge to footrim at
8.00 o'clock (4.00 o'clock to the reverse). It is faint - just visible in the images. See zoom image 5 teabowl for additional close up view of saucer. Both pieces remain durable, stable and display well.
