Coalport Saucer, c.1880 and Gold Reflect Teacup

Coalport Saucer, c.1880 and Gold Reflect Teacup

£350.00 GBP

Designed for Coalport by Thomas Blocksidge circa 1880, this Japanese Grove design helped cement the factory as one of the leading potters of the 19th and 20th centuries. Saucers in the ‘Japonism’ style became immensely popular in the 1870s as trade relations with Japan were restored, leading to an influx of oriental patterns flooding the Western market. Blocksidge was one of a handful of designers who helped bring Coalport back from the brink after a period of strife, creating similarly striking designs that spoke to the new fashion of the day.

 

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 few noticeable marks or wear, and is an important saucer from the era amd factory; a true piece of British history and craftsmanship.

 

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.
