Rare Exceptional Antique Staffordshire Soft Paste Tea Bowls and Saucers, made in the late 1770's, from a private collection. These very early sets were made by one of the Adams cousins, reputed to be Josiah Wedgwood's favorite pupil. The decorative pattern design is so lovely, with flowers, horses and beautiful river views.
Scalloped rims make these very early pieces a treat, the large saucers and footed bowls are a delight for your collection of 18th century English pottery and porcelains. Impressed round mark on the saucers. These early pieces have the usual pottery factory irregularities, one has specks of old Staffordshire pottery factory soot inside the cup, these are the things that we love in these early museum quality pieces.
