PERIOD WORCESTER FINE COFFEE CUP WITH GROOVED HANDLE, THE MAN
IN THE PAVILION PATTERN BFS II.B.1 C.1758
fine early Worcester coffee cup transfer printed in underglaze blue
with the Man in the Pavilion pattern. The blue and

coffee cup shape, with grooved handle and slightly everted narrow
tapering rim, is a delight. A particularly rare find for your very
special collection." Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.
