A superb Flight & Barr Worcester porcelain Chocolate Cup & Stand c.1800-1810. Decorated all over with this wonderfully rich Japan pattern inspired byJapanese Imari wares and porcelain produced by Meissen. Flight & Barr made this luxuriant and exotic design with brightly painted enamels and lavish and brilliant gilding. This pattern consists of a mix of Japanese Imari-inspired bright flowers, trees, birds, rocks, stars, a bridge, a pagoda and a fence in wonderfully clashing colours, beautifully painted and gilded with bold strokes. The panels are separated by dividing panels with "mons", the stylised Japanese chrysanthemum flowers that symbolise prosperity.
Incised 'B' marks to the base of the cup and the stand
Condition: No damage or restoration. A very small amount of wear to the rim.
