Coalport Saucer, c.1820 and Gold Reflect Teacup

Coalport Saucer, c.1820 and Gold Reflect Teacup

£250.00 GBP

Produced by Coalport in 1820, this design is highly delicate and feminine. During this period, duck egg blue was considered a feminine colour, signifying purity, whilst pink was actually a colour of strength and sophistication associated with men at the time.  Coalport was known for its innovative designs throughout this period and was incredibly popular as a result. Whilst we usually think of Coalport as one factory, in its early days, there were actually two factories owned by the brothers John and Thomas Rose, separated by the canal. Unfortunately for Thomas, John’s factory was the more profitable and he bought Thomas’ factory in 1814 as Coalport expanded its operations. Items from both factories are highly valued collector’s items. 

 

Antique British porcelain is never perfect. During the 1800s, kilns were fired on coal resulting in some firing specks at times, whilst makers were known for their experimentation that sometimes resulted in technically imperfect results. As a result, each saucer is truly unique and a small piece of history that has survived centuries to find its new home with you. Our pricing reflects the condition of each piece, and we ask that you embrace the small imperfections that reflect the rich past of British porcelain. This piece has a small amount of wear and imperfections due to its age and is a more common piece to have survived. 

 

Each teacup and saucer set comes with a handwritten gift card detailing the history of the antique saucer.

Collection Story

The Reflect collection started with our teacup, which brings life back to antique saucers missing their other halves by using platinum and gold gilding to create highly reflective cups. The mirrored cups reflect the patterned saucers, giving them a new lease of life and a place in contemporary homes. 

Each cup is skilfully decorated and then paired with a saucer, all of which have been meticulously sourced from antique dealers across Britain. Reflect has now grown to include matching teapots, milk jugs, sugar bowls and coffee cups, to complete the collection.
