A delightful hand painted sucrier, manufactured during the Georgian era, dating to circa 1830 to 1837. This sucrier is possibly Ridgeway, England. There are no makers stamp on the reverse side. The numbers 301 and an x in green, are shown which may be production, pattern or serial number. The crisp white porcelain body is decorated with tiny hand painted vines of flowers which also extends to the finial. There are molding designs particularly around the base of the foot and the rim of the sucrier. The two handles and the finial are molding in a rather Rococo design which are also decorated with little patterns of deep red spots and flicks.
Sucrier height from base to tip of the finial 20cm
Sucrier diameter from handle to handle 18.5cm
Condition: In excellent antique condition. There are firing spots and crazing which are normal and commensurate with such older pieces. There is a very slight crack line on the right handle (see photo). On close inspection this crack is only surface and does not run all the around the handle or through it.
An excellent antique piece which would make a wonderful table centre piece.
