As i have no knowledge about porcelain and pottery although i am slowly picking
away at it i find myself looking online and i do now have a goddens marks book
even though i am slightly or quite a lot unsure on this mark i believe it is Worcester
before the dot system was in use but i can't or don't trust myself and wondered if anyone
can help in dating this lovely floral loving cup. I would also love to know your views regarding its
desirability myself i feel over the moon with it at the reasonable price of £3 i could not leave it
even with the small hairline in the base. The porcelain is almost translucent and rings almost like glass
Would love to know if my new cup is any good as they go or just one of the mirriad? of this type which were made?
Thank you

I assume that you believe to date to be 1879? If so, then that is what I made it.

I have never liked porcelain or any ceramics with pretty floral decoration like this but I can understand why people who do like that kind of thing would appreciate this piece and Worcester in general.

I am sure you will understand that I don't know how the Worcester market is performing, except for me to say that there still seems to de an interest and so paying £3 for this piece, even with the hairline is a no brainer.

What I would add is that I would imagine that loving cups were quite common items in the Worcester range over many years and a rarer shape would have more value. Also there is no signature to the decoration, as it didn't come in until the 20th century, and I understand that there are people who will collect items by specific decorators. Therefore that would lower the price when compared to a piece maybe 30 or 40 years later that was signed.

Beautiful Worcester Loving Cup. I think an early handpainted one like that would sell well on ebay even with the hairline
