Copeland and Garrett gilded teaset. Item 2692.
This extensive Copeland and Garrett tea set is decorated with a bat printed pattern 4841, which consists of birds perched on grapevines, together with leaves and flowers, and then enhanced with hand gilding. The body of the set is of “Felspar Porcelain”, which was introduced by Spode in 1821 and continued into the Copeland and Garrett period. Most of the set is marked with the rarely seen “Copeland and Garrett Felspar Porcelain” mark as shown below. The plate also carries an impressed “F”, which according to Robert Copeland in his “Spode and Copeland Marks”, was probably intended as an internal identification for a changed trial recipe. The set comprises a teapot and stand, a lidded sugar bowl, milk jug, a plate, 10 teacups, 9 coffee cups and 10 saucers. However with some minor damage to some cups and saucers, it effectively becomes a teaset for six. There are also some small firing cracks on the teapot, the sugar bowl and the milk jug. Overall the printed pattern and the gilding are in good condition. C1838.
